Yeah - I don't put it in titles, but once you click 'Yes, I'd like to continue this discussion, please', fuck yeah, let's get our filthy language on.
This has actually been a thing for me for a damn long while. Writing-wise, I'm nervous about my pacing, but marketing-wise? Sharing-wise? Audience-wise? I get worried that I'll offend someone with the words I use.
My entire first chapter/post is a filter fr every reader: get through it, survive that, and you've seen pretty much the worsn of what I'm going for. But even with it, whenever I mention my story to someone, I invariably start or finish the summary with, "Oh. And by the way, there's language." And they either say, "Okay," then get back to me later about how they weren't expecting 'quite so much' or ask, "Uh, how much language?" and get quiet when I say, "A lot."
Where do you guys stand on it? Not about whether you use profanity in your stories, but how you manage your readers' expectations going in (if at all, and if not, why not).
