Something you are trying to figure out..
How to write a book. I would love to write a book about my experiences as a teenager, relationships, my love story with my husband. I want to write a book about my husband and his friends and their crazy exploits. I have journals full of ideas. I have even started a timeline and outlines.
I just get discouraged. Look at Amazon. There are millions of books on there for every genre, situation, idea. I get 5-10 review requests per day with someone asking me to review their self published book.
I am not a trained writer, the last English class I took was in 2000. Although I know how to express myself coherently, I have no idea how to structure it into a decent story.
The goal is to get SOMETHING written before I’m 40. Even if it is just for me.
