There is a lot I don’t write about. A lot of moments I fail to capture. Some of these are because I am not agile enough. Others are due to reasons that make me sad. Some are because I am asked to keep the story a secret and therefore, it cannot evolve into a story.
Yes, I could fictionalize certain stories (to an extent.) I do base characters off of people in one way or another for example. But you cannot do this with “every” true story.
The real tragedy is that those stories left untold are always the ones I find most valuable.
