I don't know where to post this, so I figured the lounge would work as the catch-all. I'd really like others opinions/thoughts. Tonight during supper my mother and I were discussing my favorite author. I was telling her about how she (the author) grew up in an extremely strict catholic school and as a result she can't bring herself to curse. It's just not something she can do unless she's so angry she doesn't know what she's saying. That's why her main character in her book has such a potty mouth and curses all the time, it's her way of getting it out of her system, so to speak. My mother immediately said, "She can write and think something, but not say it?! Bullshit!" To which I thought, "You're obviously not a writer." (Or something along those lines...) So, am I the only one who can empathize with not being able to bring yourself to say something you can write about? What are your thoughts on the subject?
