Thanks guys.  Well today was therapy and I handed in my homework.  She read and said she loved it.  She really liked the title.  She was serious about me writing a book it seems.  She showed me a book one of her other clients wrote with her help. She expects to publish it.   It is going to take a long time to really give my story. But I am not leaving her anytime soon.  Well next weeks home work is to come up with chapter titles.  Not sure where I will go with that.

Maybe you could do some research on how different books are done. I recently read a book by Jane Fonda and she had an interesting way of grouping her chapters. She called the first 1/3 Gathering, the second Seeking, and the third Beginning. Ok I can't really explain why, but she did a great job of explaining it. Darn I think I am just rambling nonsensically..............

Mox have you ever read On Writing by Stephen King? The first half is autobiographical but in the second half he pretty much lays out the writing process as he goes through it. It might be worth reading and it's Stephen King so your local library should  have it. Just a thought.

I will try to find it.  I have to pay the fine I owe to the library first.  It has  been five years since I accrued the fines.  oooppps So maybe it is time to pay it.

Yeah tell me about it. I'm still into the library for about $7. I had to give them 5 bucks so they would let me check out books again.

I think I might own that book. I'll have a look around for it  :flower:

Moxie, that's a great beginning. Very moving.

If you get the book published, are you going to change the names? Personally, I wouldn't be comfortable with using my real name and putting it all out there. But I have read some books about depression where people did that.

You're really brave for doing this.  :wave:

If I actually get this thing done I am going to use a pseudonym.  There are too many people still alive that will be in the book and I will respect their rights to privacy and as long as they don't know I wrote it things should be fine.  The chance though that they would even get a copy to read would be slim.  I sure as hell aren't giving them a copy.

Good idea. No way in hell would I use my own name.

Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. As long as the names are changed, you should be ok.
