Okay.....Here I am writing a reality-based romance novel, which I fully pictured the character-tree, but I am rather lost on where all the actions would be taken place. So, should it be a fantasy dream-land, or a city which never exists (but have a sense of reality), or a real city (like London or .....) Where the setting is in a city I created, I would have to go through the trouble of precisely describing it's atmosphere, it's soil, it's landmarks, to a point where readers could wholly picture where Romeo and Juliet are. (This might even confuse or bore the readers, if I don't do it well.) To chose a real city, it would request me a lot of experience (which I don't possess), I haven't travel much (I'm an Asian, my characters are European), so all I could know about that city would be a wiki-search (I will try Google Earth later), so it would be conspicuous to the readers that I'm bluffing about all. For the city/town which I plan, I need an isolation, a river, obsolete style, Victorian houses, and a lake too. Please suggest what I could do.
