Of course, do not use it in a children’ novel nor just to fill pages when you run out of ideas. It’s not necessary for a character living a stress free life. But it may be necessary for characters whose lives aren’t a bowl of cherries. Those who may have to be tough in order to survive.
I was told once by a reviewer she couldn’t review the book because she didn’t like the way Bea talks. Therefore she couldn’t finished the book.
I accept it and I fully understands that every one does not likes the way Bea talks but I was curious, she said she liked Dean Winchester who says a lot of the same things Bea say [And before any one start talking plagiarism, All of my books, characters and dialogues were written long before Supernatural ever aired and I wasn’t about to go through all that work and change it] but with him being a guy, I noticed it is more acceptable.
Ummm….That sounds more like sexism than anything to do with Bea’s foul mouth. Yes, women can be sexist in the worst way.
In some scenes foul words are kind of unavoidable. I’m sure anyone with bullets shattering glass over their head isn’t yelling. “Branded idiot! Poop giant! Blunderbuss! What the jig!? Party of flying pigs! Spells and curses! Slushy Icecream!” Or any other curse words in that line of swearing. 😀
I don’t write young adult literary. I write about nasty demons and foul mouthed satanist trying to kill people, and none of these characters are nice beings.
I only use it to emphasize how distressful the situation is to the character.
Azazael has the worst possible mouth when isn’t around Ana.
It’s not like Ana condones Bea’s cussing anymore than any parent condones their child cursing or cussing. And if you think yours don’t curse then I assume you do not pay them much attention to hear what they are whispering under their breathe when walking away. 😀
