I'm writing first person of a English boy in late 1800s/early 1900s and am part of a local writers work-shop. They told me, to make my point come across more, I should try to write with a "British Accent". He is a street fighter, so his vocabulary would be a mix between educated and slang. I was hoping you guys could give me some pointers of how to write with a British accent, some terms a teen his age (18) might use in this time period ect. Also, I don't want to make it over bearing, so much so that you can't read it. I have read some books like this before and get lost in the dialogue. Part 2: My English lad is in Ireland, so what are some pointers to writing with a "Irish accent" that, again, isn't so thick that others won't be able to read it. Also: Do you guys enjoy it when books do this or are written this way? Right now, my short story is in "normal" English, and I'm still on the fence about changing it. Hoping you guys would help.
