Hybrid fiction & non fiction novel
Hi this is my first time here and my first post.
I am currently writing a novel about my experiences in Iraq as a private security contractor. I'm not doing it for money or for fame just a tick off my bucket list.
I won't lie to anyone, I'm not actually writing it but talking into a dictaphone and having a company transcribe it into word document.
Here is my question and I hope anybody out there can help.
I have got quite far into my story all based/drawn on from actual real events but I would like the story to go off in a direction that tells a story if I'd have done what was ask then this is what would have happened scenario. I hope that makes sense, I was wondering if this is perfectly acceptable?
