I write about my family a lot. I've never really worried about online journals and poetry, but I do worry that if I ever wanted to write a book or publish a journal or an autobiography that I might offend my family - siblings, nieces, nephews. I've considered writing 'nonfiction' as 'fiction' - protecting the characters, etc. Just wondering if anyone else has ever been concerned about this and what you decided to do about it. Thanks for any help!
