Where to start on writing a book? Several questions.


I want to write a book (yes I know seems to be the popular thing right now). I really don't care if I sell one copy. This is more for myself since I have been wanting to do so for many years. Where do I begin when I am not the best of writers? Do I just write a lot of stuff down then come back and compile it into one? Is it best to turn a horrible life story into ficton in order to protect the people involved?

sort by best latest

    Ficticious names might work better since I will be dealing with stuff involving crimes. Didn't think about keeping it non fiction and just changing names. Thanks!

    I love that "first draft from the heart" and "second draft from the mind" - a very good way to look at it!
