Using foul language in writing


One of the people that reads just about everything that I write is my mother. Now, I'm 37 years old, married, and a father myself, but I still watch my language around my parents. It is simply the way that I was raised. I can't always extend that courtesy in my writing because sometimes, foul language suits the character or the moment. I have read many books and seen many movies where the language seems to be added in for no true reason. It is just there to be there, and I often feel that it takes away from the writer's talent. I'm not a prude, but I am practical. Is the foul language necessary? Well, that's the topic of this week's vlog.
