Hey guys i am new here and i am currently in the process of writing a non-fiction book about my struggle over coming drug addiction, abandonment and being homeless and trying to survive on the streets. I am really new at writing. this is my first book. i really dont know where to start. one tip i got from someone is to forget about writing perfectly at first and just write. that has been working great every day i write for at least an hour i write my thoughs and feelings and it just pours out onto the paper well th computer.lol. but anyways im here to get advice from anyone who has written before or anyone who who knows a lot about writing. feel free to leave a message. Thanks so much and i hope to hear from ya :)

I would start off by reading a bit of non fiction to get some idea on how it should flow. Then I highly recommend this book.

After that just write, as you friend said. Just write.
