This may have been covered before, and if so, I apologize up front. I couldn't figure out a good way to search the topic. The book I'm currently writing has a lot of 'me' in it, either direct of somewhat veiled. My view on religion, relationship with my father, my most heart-breaking loss of someone I loved...I play with it, fictionalize it and so on but for people who know me and read this, it may be either obvious or a rude awakening. However, these life experiences being real are what brings life to the story, because these are things I know a great deal about. At what point does baring one's soul for the world to see become...unwise? I'm not at all fearful of total strangers reading the story, but upon completion I know my spouse and several family members will be expecting a read. Has anyone else had experience with this, and what was the result?
