So, those of us who write nonfiction I'm sure have crossed paths with some haters. Truth can hurt, and it sure can shake things up. Do you care what people think when you're writing about yourself and your life? I guess none of us are in this to make friends. I'm not one to worry about getting sued or anything like that. I think people tend to worry about that sort of thing more than they really have to. But sometimes there is a backlash or fallout when it comes to publishing nonfiction. I do trust my publisher and we've discussed some of my concerns, but my publisher and editor really aren't all that concerned. When writing creative nonfiction do you ever hold back or do you feel like if it's your life you're free to present it the way you see it, the way it is for you? Real life can be messy, and sometimes the messier the better in terms of the story. At least I know I'm being read. But writing creative nonfiction is bigger than just a story, in my opinion. Universal truths connect us. So, do you just say F 'em to the haters? After all none of it is really about them, right? I'm not even sure how many people on this forum are into this sort of writing, but if you are I'm sure you've probably pissed off a few people here and there. How do you handle the haters?
