When you write, are you worried about politically correct
word choices, such as using the word "Chicks" in a title?
Sorry to any of the "-ists" out there, but I just have the write the story the way it needs to be written and let the chips fall where they may.
That's not to say that I ever set out to offend intentionally, but I can't let the story suffer because someone might take something my narrators or characters say at face value and believe that's also the opinion of the author.
I like to think that people are, for the most part, smarter than that (unless they are lobbyists for special interest groups).
