#146991 - 09/02/04 06:23 PM Writing a book about my life
Anonymous
Unregistered


I have a burning desire to write a book about my life as a child in a large family - the various trials and tribulations then and what has happened to the family and myself to date. It has consumed my life and I feel I need to do it but have no idea how to go about it. Would welcome any discussion or advise. cheers :rolleyes:

Have you started writing notes on your memories?

If you journal you have already begun your book. This is a perfect way to start. I recently reviewed the first draft of a biography about family. The author's reason for writing her book is the same as yours. Her stories came together by simply writing her thoughts in a notebook. After a while she realized that she had a story to tell.

Go for it and just start writing. This type of book seems to be very popular these days.

I took a course at Writer's Weekly that was amazing. It helped me approach it from a chronological manner and to recall things I thought I had forgotten. Here's the link:

Hi Moe,

I am familiar with Writers Weekly and its publisher Angela Hoy but I did not realize she taught classes. I can't thank you enough for bringing WW to my attention, I had not visited this site in a long time. I have put the link in my favs <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
