I am almost at the end of my first draft. When I began I was determined to write a "clean" novel but as I have progressed it has become obvious that my characters, well one in particular, need to swear in order to become realistic. He is a pleasure seeking, hot headed rogue from the back streets of London and as such, I am thinking that his language should be occasionally fruity. The thing is, I am generally a bit uncomfortable with bad language. Has anyone else encounteerd this dilemma? Oddly, I have included a short sex scene which I wasn't looking forward to writing, but which went quite well.
