All the Cool Titles Are Taken...

I wanted to call my story "Stranger Than Fiction"...can't use that now...

I want to write a book about my childhood abuse, and i am considering hiding it in the guise of fiction, as most of the perpetrators are still alive...There are also many things I can't clearly recall, so I am "fictionalizing" those events, but still trying to keep them as real as possible.

I have written up to age 11, and my mother refuses to read it.  LOL, imagine that!!

Your very brave. Good for you.I learned to tie my shoes with my father standing over me with a belt.

i wanted to write about my childhood too and make it "fiction" but i wondered how many people would read a fictional book about a little girl getting her *** beat with a hammer and so on... then again i would have read it as a teenager... good luck :)
