I would like too.

I think the most simple way is to write about what you know.

Perhaps even an autobiography.

I was thinking about writing a survival guide.

I was planning to publish some original art but my drawing is awful

What about you?

Do you think a book with short chapters would be acceptable? I like to make things concise.

Yes.
The greatest novels written are very short and concise. Eg 'Biff and Chip'

I am working on my own book, well two dependent on mood. It is slow going as my concentration is all on or all off. The first is at least all mapped out alongside character arcs and the logic of the world. Concise is the in thing Burt. Less is more because you leave the reader to fill the gaps with their imagination which you want so they lose awareness they are even reading. There is a pretty awesome writing method you may appreciate.

Thank you Ghost Owl. That was helpful. I thought that each chapter would be a fictional piece based on a psychotic delusion.

I was also thinking about writing about phobias and nerds.

My book is about me : I'm less confidenrt writing on the net - and my typos are getting gradually worse, and I can't seem to blind type anymore....I'd be better off writing an entire book in longhand -- the screen really makes my eyes hazy, lazy and i trust it less and less

I wanted to tra. Slate the New Testament but it’s been done. My life is at a high point of emotion often. But I can’t even die and come back to life. So boring. But aren’t authors some of the most awesome communicators?

I'd like to write but I write like I speak. Which is to switch subjects before I'm fully through with the first one. I've thought of starting a blog though. Like about my life blog so I could write random and freely without being restricted to one subject.

Maybe one about mental illness? A disorder? It takes a long time to write one by yourself.
