To proceed, then try to think of main events, back stories, turning points, climaxes, anticlimaxes and descriptions of characters and decide on the outline of your story. If your are writing an autobiographical book or an inspiring book which would benefit the readers to shape their personalities and lives, think and decide on the extent of information you want to include in the book. Now, start writing, think out the organization of your book and see to it. After you have finished writing, revise, proofread, correct, and prepare a final draft. Then, all that is left is finalizing your book and giving it for print and publishing.
