I’ve worked and worked on the chapter about my husband’s indecision regarding attending college and added as much tension as I dare. I want to keep my writing as factual as possible but also make it interesting. According to a writing coach I’ve met, she claims that if I ever want to publish my work, I’d have to embellish it a lot and really ramp up the tension in order to keep the reader engaged. The question for me is, “What am I going to do with this? Do I really want to publish it or just make it available for family?”
Another troubling decision to make. I’ll think about that one later.
