Fuck - Day 6 of A-Z
Yes. I did it. I went there. I'm a bad man for doing so. But why? Basically, in my (dark) fantasy story 'A Matter of the Heart', I've had occasion to write a scene where characters cuss, but I was reluctant to resort to 'modern' swearing for fear of breaking the moment. I know in George R.R. Martin's, 'Game of Thrones', he throws in the whole gamut of swear words. As easy as it is on the ears to hear in the television adaptation of his story, due to its everyday commonplace usage, I'm very reluctant to go that route; for a modern day setting as in my Three Minute Friday Short Story 'Old Farm', I used the f-bomb, but it was applicable for the contemporary setting.
But for a more informative and historical background exploration of this versatile word, I sincerely urge you to visit this Wikipedia link which tells everything you wanted to know about the F-word. Normally I skim through a Wikipedia page, but this one I had to read from top to bottom. It really is a great read and puts to bed some of those myths regarding the origins of the F-word. I hope you enjoy :)
