I am currently writing a book that takes place in mid to late 1800’s with gothic undertones. However, my writing style is so modern and I use so many phrases and words that make it seem of this time period rather than the 1800’s.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? Maybe some suggestions on books that have this (preferably wattpad books, classics bore me… I am so sorry.) or maybe a generator that helps? I don’t want it to be too forced and Shakespearean, but it definitely is not feeling very authentic and I hate it.
