Hello Tal! I have the same problem myself. But I've figured it out eventually. First, you have to consider your audience. You have to ask yourself: Will it be for children 9-12 years old? Or will it be for teens? Of course, teens could handle swearing more (not that it's appropriate for children). If you're having second thoughts with the swearing, or when you think your character has said enough inappropriate words, just use, "He cursed." Or she cursed. ;) You really don't have to mention it! :D
A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him´╗┐ than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell

Why should Caesar just get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar, right? Brutus is just as smart as Caesar, people totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar, and when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody because that's not what Rome is about! We should totally just stab Caesar!
