Join me each Thursday for some Tough Travelling with the Tough Guide, hosted by Fantasy Review Barn. Inspired by ‘The Tough Guide to Fantasyland,‘ we will set out on a quest to track down the biggest tropes and clichés in fantasy fiction.
| Creative Cursing |
New lands, new languages, new things to cuss out. Nobody in fantasyland cusses in quite the same way though; each world has its own way to yell at the world.
Ahh when it comes to inventive cursing, you could do much worse than delve into a fantasy novel. Who knew the creators of entire worlds would love coming up with new ways to berate, insult and abuse beloved characters so much. If you’re looking for a new way to curse or exclaim at your loved ones, then look no further than:
