Memoir related question for writers here.
This is a difficult question for me to even think about because just this morning I finished a music related memoir that I began two years ago and has gone through seven revisions. I've gone to great pains to make it the absolute best work I can. But then this morning I sent a piece from it, a review of a show a friend of mine and his band did that I saw, for his consideration. He was unhappy because I placed too much emphasis on is role in the band. I rewrote the piece and sent it back to him and he like it a lot. OK, fine, but wait! Do I now do that with every section of an 88,000 word manuscript to make sure every single person in my life over the last 64 years is Ok with what I've written? Or do I just throw the last two year of my life in the waste basket? Right now I don't know what I need more- a drink, a shrink, or the ledge of a tall building. Sorry, gallows humor. I'm not going to jump off a roof. Not literally!
