As therapy after ex left I began writing a book. The book is a story about marital breakdown coupled with a house "falling apart" and how the woman built herself back up while restoring the house. It's based on my marriage and scenes in it are exactly what happened but it IS a work of fiction (especially since my house still has no kitchen cupboards and half a bathroom, lol)
I mentioned to a few people that I wanted to try and get it published once I'm done and got mixed reviews to that. Some friends said it may be unfair to ex since it's like I'm putting his infidelity and the way he treated me on public display. I'll have the usual "this is fiction. No characters are intended to represent anyone in real life" waiver at the beginning but to anyone who knows us it's going to be pretty damn obvious that I didn't pull the story out of thin air.
In a way I want him to be hurt by it and I hope he reads it because I'd like him to really see what he did to me. But another part of me thinks that I don't want him being hurt because his family and friends read the story and put 2 and 2 together.
