What Does Based on a True Story Mean?
Welcome to College always carries the disclaimer that it's based on a true story. It's probably closer to what happened than a typical Hollywood biopic is, but I admit that upped the intensity of a lot of scenes in order to create more drama. I changed the timing of things to allow stories to end on a high note and I changed the names and some details of characters to protect their identities. I guess I'd say the story was 80% true. I still have a large number of stories that got chopped to fit in some of the bigger things and they may pop up in future eBooks.
