I am working on shorter memoir pieces for now, writing mostly personal essays. Obviously, I am writing about my life and the people in it. My question for you guys is do you tell people you are writing about them? I'm not trying to be secretive, but I do worry that people might alter or try to alter our interactions or relationships if they know they are the subject matter of my latest piece. Just wondering how you all handle this aspect of memoir writing.
