Question
I am trying to write a book.  I have written down all my insperations and ideas.  I have written many small parts of my book, but I am having trouble putting them all together.  I cant seem to connect to my writting.  This book means alot to me and i want it to be great.  I just cant seem to pull it all together.  Any help you could lend me on how to finish my book would be wonderful.  

Answer
It is not easy pulling a book together. Sometimes it takes authors years to get it right. If you are open to paying someone, you could look for a writer to help you finish the book. People put ads which are free on Craigslist.org to do this. You could also try making an outline of the book and look at similar books to see how they are put together.

Good luck.
