I don't know if anyone knows anything about legal in this community but I thought I would give this a shot...
I am writing a book right now about my ex boyfriend and I's relationship. He was an abusive jerk who not only sodomized me but treated me like the dirt stuck inside the souls of his sneakers. I thought that writing about our abusive relationship would help other girls in that situation get through their abusive relationships...I have changed everyone's names and also added some parts that I wasn't there for because it applies to the story, so a bunch of it is fictious, but there are a lot of things in the book that anyone who was there during the time would know is true.
I know that if he says that the book is about him, he won't ever get laid again or have anyone's respect, but he is stupid enough to boast that the book is about him...I'm worried he can sue me even though his name is not in the book.
Does anyone know if I am crossing any lines or can get sued for any of this? I don't feel like writing the whole thing just to find out that I have to change EVERYTHING. I am only on Chapter 2 but it has taken me 5 months to get that far!
