Is it OK if foul language exists in any of the stories? One of my characters is foul-mouthed?

Check my R1 entry for the Screenwriting Challenge (Junkfood). It had plenty of expletives in it. Well... enough that I was worried, too. Ended up 2nd in my Group!

No issues at all. I've even seen a few stories with rather racy content. If it fits your story, theme, or character, it's not an issue.

Thanks for your replies. I submitted my entry with the expletives since the language fit the characters.
