What if you didn't hold back on naming names? (Okay - some names need to be changed - yes.)
What if you didn't pretty up the language? I mean in terms of vocabulary and roughness and all - I don't mean in terms of keeping the story telling clear; more in terms of keeping the dialogue absolutely, honestly, real and as you remember or how you imagine those characters would really talk - not as they "should."
It's not going to be pretty. But it will be real.
And there's always the editing later.
