i too use the eff wordDesignist7 said:Hey Everyone,
I wanted to know what do you guys use in your fiction instead of saying GodD*mn. I would rather not use it for religous reasons. I appreciate any feedback. Stay safe and Be Well!
Jeff Hughes said:You can't just plug in any old word and expect it to work. Exclamations of profanity are part and parcel of our world. And if you're being honest to the characters you've created, they'll tell you which words to use.
Using "Gosh darn," for instance, might work for a straight-laced history teacher you've created. But it wouldn't work at all for an abusive, drunk husband or a crew of profane sailors on a ship... or, frankly, most of the instances in which GD is used.
Your alternative is to write stories and create characters that don't require such language.
I forgot to mention that the book is being written in third person, so ir isn't dialogue at all, just describing a "crazy" and humorous character.
In that case, it would probably be preferable to leave the GD expression completely out. Find another way to get the point across.Designist7 said:I forgot to mention that the book is being written in third person, so ir isn't dialogue at all, just describing a "crazy" and humorous character.
