Thoughts/Advice?

For a long time now I’ve wanted to write a book, and I haven’t because I can’t decide what exactly I want to talk about or how I want to execute it. My life in my teens was all about pleasing my family. Once I was grown I went from one toxic relationship to the next. Each one a little more messed up than the last in a completely different way. I was engaged, I am now a single mother. Completely unrelated events; I was engaged to a woman. Becoming a mother and the things I went through with my child’s father has changed me so much.. I know that’s what I want to talk about. The change in who I am now. Going from homeless to two bedroom apartment. From drug and alcohol addiction to sober and cautious. I want to share my story.. What I’m not sure about… is my audience (should I decide to write a book). How much of the story do I include? How far do I go back? What would people want to know? What if I wasn’t so formal? What if I wore my book exactly how I’m writing this post; just a message to whoever is reading? Would you buy that? Would you read that?

My only advice is to start writing and let it take shape as you go. I remember seeing a quote "You can always edit a bad page. You can't edit a blank page"

I couldn't agree more! That's probably the best advice out there. Just start with a very simple idea (don't try to be original, it's the best way to judge yourself), and see where it takes you. Last time I tried, I started with "a square of grass" 😀

I love writing but deal with alot of doubts before getting anything done,figure out what you want to say and commit to it,the first step is always hardest but it has to begin at some point,if what you say means something to you and is genuine ,others will see that and connect to it,be honest but consider what you want to share and pretty much,if you work hard to tell the best story you can and its geniune ,you'll find an audience i belive

as a content creator myself, a lot of it is really just doing what YOU want to do and less about what others want if youre aiming for best seller new source of great income, writing might not be for you sadly. a lot of the arts whether its writing or painting/etc that gains massive amounts of attention is just happen chance, if you end up being formulaic you def wont be doing your story justice and youll live with that regret. so just write what YOU think is right, people will read if they like, and if they dont, so what? at least you put it out there and that should be the biggest furfilling thing for you! so rooting for you to just get at it!

I appreciate that, I think my message got a bit lost though. I’m not so much looking for approval as information. It’s not gaining readers that I’m concerned with, it’s making sure those that do read understand what I’m trying to put across. As this is a pretty perfect example of how the way I explain things tends to be misunderstood, even when I think I’m being clear.

@D tbf im not exactly the guy that picks up on everything in a message lol, but i think my point still stands a wee bit, because writing is an art, its sort of why we have analysis of books and the such to figure out what the writer meant. we can NEVER know just from a book how the author felt till we get to talk to them 1v1. because youre trying to describe a feeling to best of your ability and thats all ANYONE can ask, and the only way someone can get clearity if they dont get it is to ask ya. i just think youre overthinking it and should just write what ya want and if anything get someone to proof read it with ya!(like a bestie) but whenever ya do it, youll get it, just got to get over the hurdle of STARTING

The Starfish Story

One day, a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it back into the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, "What are you doing?" The boy replied, "Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw...

Life

According to me life starts from "B" to "D" which means from birth to death but there is something in between b and d which is c so life is the meaning of choice what we make.

Past Love

I could say I hate you but I don't I could say I wish I never met you but I'm happy that I did Maybe if I think of you as a statue instead of a person then one day all of my memories of you will crumble like broken clay And I'll finally be free from this pain

We all have a bag. We all pack differently. Some of us are traveling light. Some of us are secret hoarders who never parted with memory in our lives. I think we are all called to figure out how to carry our bag to the best of our ability, how to unpack it, and how to face the mess. I think part of...

Little Things To Remember

It's okay if you didn't turn out to be who you thought you'd be one day. It's okay to not always know where you're going. Even when you're feeling low or maybe even the worst you have in a long time, you still deserve for good things to happen. Even when you're not okay you're giving it your all...
