Question
I HAVE BEEN THROUGH AN EXPERIENCE THIS PAST YEAR THAT IS BEYOND ANYTHING I HAVE EVER BEEN THROUGH.

IF I WANTED TO TELL MY STORY, AND HAVE IT TURNED INTO A BOOK, WHERE WOULD I START.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH,  PETER

Answer
You would need a unique angle, although if you are not a celebrity, you would not likely attract a publisher's attention.

Your best bet is to write about something that you know or have an interest in.  That way, you can still make a connection to your experiences.  Ideally, this book would have an overall theme, such as survival.
