Hi.

My name is (removed) and for years I’ve been thinking about writing a book about my life. I just don’t know where to start and how to move forward. Could you please fill me in on where should I start?

There are hundreds of books on the market on how to write books and even some specializing in how to write memoirs and autobiographies. They cover many different methods, from outlining, to just stream of consciousness writing, to many other methods in between.
