Hello! I’m Kathleen and I’m currently wrapping up my first historical romance, a 12th century highlander. I feel pretty good about my dialogue so far, but I have 3 major worries: 1) how to balance the “old” language for modern readers, 2) how to write dialects that aren’t obnoxious (I don’t think that’s covered here, but it’s still on my mind!), and 3) how to determine whether all my characters sound like….well…me!
Looking foward to getting tips and strengthening my writing!
