Swearing

There’s a web site out there that monitors Twitter accounts for curse words, called Cursebird.

Apparently, I swear like a mute. Not one damn curse word out of me. Which doesn’t reflect my everyday speech patterns at all.

I’m not saying I’m going to start throwing around curse words like a coal miner. Or, even worse, Chuck Barney. I’m just saying it’s kind of interesting how people who genuinely enjoy swearing can so easily stay away from it when writing. I believe that good writing should reflect the styles we use when speaking.

So what the $%#@ is my problem?
