Hello, a new writer here... I have always hard issues expressing myself and communicating, due to a troubled childhood, and have always found the easiest way to express myself is through writing, so I thought why not try to make something of it! So this has led me onto the idea of writing my life story, about the trials I faced and how I have used something negative and turned it into something positive. A typical triumph over evil kind of thing! Just a couple of questions to help get me started. When writing a life story like this what is the correct way to introduce real life people into my book? Should I approach them about using their name? Create a pseudo name for them? Thinking about the most successful autobiographies that you know, would first person perspective work better than third person? Maybe even a combination of the two? As if two people are telling different parts of the story? Like I said, I am a new writer and any kind of advice is welcome, along with any other tips that may help me on this venture. Thanks in advance!
