I don't much favor using fiction technique in memoir writing. It feels like lowering the net. When I grapple with the meaning of a fact, I find myself forced to deal with the truth as it is not as I wish it were. Fiction, which I used to write regularly, does access truth in life but not the truth of my life.
I believe that the reader also expects the memoirist to adhere strictly to facts.
Yes, particiation on this site is limited. I have found both here and on other forums that when a forum is monitored too rigidly and dogmatically, the membership drops off. Activity comes to a standstill. Like people, forums need room to breathe.
