Re: Cursing in Novels



I’m trying to think of all the stories I’ve written and I don’t think I’ve even put a swear word in any of them, I just don’t see the need for it most of the time. I just won an ARC copy of a book being released later this week and started reading it today…there’s a lot of swearing in it and I find myself cringing when I come across it- I’m just not used to it. It’s used appropriately in this novel I’m reading but because it’s not something I go out of my way to read, it still has some shock factor.
