I resonate so much with what you said about women's voices, and how hard it's to tell the truth. I am writing a memoir and I am facing this right now.
I wanted to add to my comment below! Wow this sounds similar to the story I’m writing which started from journal entries 8 years ago. Again, I’m having trouble figuring out how to publish this without concern about legal action. Any advice? I changed the names but is that enough? It’s all true but some parts are more personal.
Thank you! How were you able to write about your subjects without libel? I am currently writing non-fiction and I want to tell my story to help others but I’m not sure how to go about it when there are these legal issues we are warned of.
I really don't know what to say... I mean besides, thank you. Thank You VEry MUCH!!! You gave me the courage I think I needed due to the extreme hardships and traumatic events I was put in and through during my addiction. And with people like you I don't feel so alone because my reason for putting it all out there is way more than just part therapeutic it's about those out there still suffering, those who feel alone, hopeless! It's a nonfiction tell-all/ self-help guide/book in aspects of even more importantly the Recovery portion and still daily fight to sustain long-term Recovery! Your words of wisdom are with me!!! God Bless You on Your Road!!!
