My main piece of work in progress revolves around an event in the late 19th century. I personally feel it would benefit by making out that I found this 'journal' in the loft of a house, having it published under a pen name. Thus there would be questioning between those who may be a little more believing (you know, the sort to believe a conspiracy theory without questioning it). Eventually, I'm guessing it would become clear that it was actually written by a modern author, myself. However, is this just blatent lying? Or could I be allowed to due to artistic license (or something to that extent)? If what I have just said made little or no sense at all, I understand and I will try and explain again if anyone has questions Cheers!
