I wrote myself a note last night, reminding myself to delete all the F bombs in my manuscript before submitting it to my editor. When I woke, searched the book, found 30 times I used f**k, and tried to find an alternate word that had the same meaning. There is no alternative, folks. If you write f**k, it's because f**k is what you mean. So...yeah. F**k is in my latest book 30 times. "Climax," "orgasm," and sex scenes, are in there, too. If you're a child, you've snuck this book from your parents' room, and reading f**k isn't probably what you'll being focusing on, and, not incidentally, I'm not your mother. We're all adults here, right?
I live for the HEA and am constantly striving to improve my craft. Social media is the only place I connect with my peeps, so I rely on it for feedback about writing and the writing life.
