So there was a story in the news a couple years ago that I took a HUGE interest in because it was near where my father lived. I followed it in the news, read every artical I could find, and watched every bit of live coverage I could when I could. I would like to write a short story on that event, from the 'Suspect's' perspective. It would be purely fictional, but follow the exact time line and specific details of the events that happened. Now, this isn't something I would ever dream of publishing or anything like that, outside of posting it for critique as a way of bettering my writing ability. What do you all think of doing something like that? I understand I run the risk of offending someone (which come on, what can you do now a days that doesn't risk offense), but I would like to use this event that I have vast knowledge of, to craft and maybe learn new writing techniques and such. If this is something I do start, what label would it fall under? I can't imagine 'Fan Fiction' being the right thing, but that's the closest genre I can think of.
