On the serious side, there is one question that I have never received a satisfactory answer to. When I was 21 a very good friend of mine from high school, a young man who sang at my wedding, who I would have dated if his parents let him go out with older girls, a very close friend 19 years old attending college and seemingly doing well, committed suicide. It devastated me and I spent months wondering if there was something I could have done, but I had no clue there was a problem. He left no note. He apparently shot himself in the head when no one else was home at his apartment. No one has ever provided a reason why. There could be a mystery there - I'm not even totally convinced it was a suicide. So there, raw and real.(less)

If the idea of writing sounds too intimidating, you could look for a collaborator or ghost writer who can take all of your stories, perspectives, and wisdom and help you form them into a crafted piece of literature. I have never done anything like that, but there are authors out there who specialize in that kind of work. Or, just start a notebook and write down things you remember that were meaningful, informative, fun, scary - the more emotion the better. You can always go back later to organize them. Also, if you do find a colab or ghost writer, they are going to want all that anyway.
1) do not let a blank page intimidate you 2) it's ok to start with a voice recorder 3) the history of your life matters as much as any other history that has ever been written 4) JUST GO FOR IT! (less)
