Question
HI HOW ARE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR A YOUR TIME FOR MANY YEARS NOWIVE WANTED TO WRITE A BOOK ABOUT MY LIFE AND ALL IVE BEEN THROUGH BUT I JUST DONT KNOW WHERE TO START AND WHO CAN HELP ME WITH THIS IF YOU HAVE SOME ANSWERS FOR THAT IT WOULD BE A GREAT HELP.

Answer
It sounds like you want to try memoir writing. You may find articles at absolutewrite.com that may be helpful. There are also boards on there where you can asks questions. Also see if amazon.com has any books on memoir writing or writing your life story. If you don't want to buy the books, you may find them in a library. There are online classes, and you can search them through a search engine like yahoo.com. If you think you need a writer's help, you can post a free ad on craigslist.org. The writer will probably want to be paid unless they will work for future profits. Good luck.
