This may sound strange, coming from someone who writes erotic romance, but there are several words I don't like to use, and certainly would NOT have them come out of my mouth!
Words I've Written, But Sparingly:
-basically anything with a derogatory context for race, women, private parts, or people in general. I have written a few, but only if I end up with a character who uses them.
I'm also not a fan of certain euphemisms; I once saw a post full of weird ones that I can't even recall them now, unless it is meant to be funny, as in the case of Spinal Tap:
"My baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo; I'd like to sink her with my pink torpedo..."
"My love gun's loaded and she's in my sight; big game's waiting there inside her tights...."
"Sex farm woman don't you see my silo risin' high...high....high..."
Words I Hope To Only Use Once Per Book:
This is only because of a Certain Book Which Shall Not Be Named, because they are in nearly every damn paragraph on every damn page!
Word I've Said In Anger, But Not All The Time:
Unless I'm seeing red from anger, this word usually does not come out of my mouth, even when it's in a song. When She Hates Me by Puddle of Mud came out several years back, I realized I was singing every word, and even inserting it when the radio didn't! Plus, it was creeping into every day language more and more, so I decided to purge it from my vocabulary.
Until I started reading and writing erotic romance.
Yes, there are some of my books where it is prolificly used....but I will say 'freaking' or even 'frickin' instead.
Unless, of course, you have me so mad I slip up!
