172. Writing Based on True Events

Writing a book based on true events can be tricky. You want to avoid legal actions, and you want to avoid hurting people you know and love. If you are writing based on true events, you need to remember that it should serve the audience, not you. Focus on what others can learn from these events, and take out details that don’t drive these lessons forward. People are more interested in what they can learn from you than they are in their life. Plus, if you focus on your audience, you will avoid a lot of the heartaches that come with choosing what to say and what not to say.
