How To Write A Book For Beginners
How to Write Your Life Book
A Life Book is basically a large, thick, sturdy notebook used to write your thoughts and opinions. It is not exactly a journal and does not have date labelled entries. It is just a book in which you write about things that happened to you or what you've been through. (not necessarily in chronological order).
Find and purchase a sturdy, thick notebook with more than one hundred pages.It should be inspiring. A cover with only one colour and no patterns would be perfect as you can decorate it with photographs and drawings of yourself or your favourite things.
Start by writing a few sentence starters like "My name is...", "I am...years...months old", "My birthday is on..." etc. You can also include starters about your un/favourite things to do such as "I like eating...", "My favourite film is..." and so on. Write at least 12 sentence starters. After you've finished add your personal information and pictures. Add descriptions if you like, so that it will be more interesting.
On the next blank page write in big, bold bubble letters "MY OWN STORY".You can embellish it with doodles, zig-zags and colours.
Do not necessarily start by talking about your birth - it is not supposed to be in a chronological order!Write about what seems more relevant such as if you're feeling particularly hungry that day you may write "I feel like eating a candy bar right this instant. Think about a chocolate twice my size. I can see myself licking it, gnawing it carefully...". Once you start your imagination will flow.
When you finish your first writing session hide the journal so that you can return to it later.If you want it to be completely private, considering keeping your Life Book in a computer and password protecting it until it's finished. DO NOT purchase one of those diaries with locks as they break fairly easily.
Before starting your new writing session leave a 3–10 centimeter (1.2–3.9 in) gap in between the previous writing session.If you are feeling uninspired follow the same procedures as you did when you started.
When your life book is finished, consider let people read certain parts.If you typed it, it is time to print and bind it. If you are writing in the computer than consider having it one hundred pages as that is a reasonable amount to tell the story of your life. If your story is typed you can change fonts and add images more easily. However, a notebook never looses it's beauty and charm.
QuestionDo I have to get permission to use real names of people in my Life Story?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerNo, you don't need to ask permission to use real names in your Life Story, unless you plan to publish it or make it public online.Thanks!
QuestionWould it be better to write on a computer or in an actual journal or notebook?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThis is mainly based on preference. You can try both and see which one suits you the best. Some people, like J.K. Rowling, like drafting their entire book longhand, while others, like myself, prefer typing it straight onto a word document. Whichever works best for you.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I start writing a book?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can start any way you want as long as it makes the reader want to read more. You can write anything for the beginning of your life story because it's your story, but the one thing you want to do to keep the reader reading is to start with a strong lead.Thanks!

QuestionCan I include pictures of myself and/or my friends in my life book?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can, as long as you feel comfortable with it, and you have your friends' permission. Keep in mind, however, that including photos can put you in potential risk; if someone dangerous finds your book, they will know what you look like and potentionally stalk you.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I can't think of anything?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTry going through old pics and videos. You can also ask your parents if they have any art projects that you worked on while in school. Some of these may help you remember things. You can also focus your life book on a certain aspect of your life, ie: your family life, your time during school, your hobbies, etc.Thanks!
QuestionHow many words are in a book?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt depends, as all books are different lengths so therefore they would have different word counts.Thanks!

- If you are a born artist and enjoy drawing pictures, then maybe you'd prefer having a completely blank notebook or a sketchbook for maybe pictures of your life.
- If you enjoy writing better consider buying a lined journal with enough pages for you to write at least once a week for an entire year. Think about the amount you are going to write. Some people write in their Life Book on a daily basis. Always think about the size of your handwriting size and pictures and film tickets.
