If you're a stroke survivor, people probably tell you all the time, "Maybe you should write a book." Surviving a stroke and then struggling back to normalcy, or at least as close as you can get to it, sets the stage for writing a memoir. It's never too late to start, so grab your pen and start writing.
Wait! How do you even start such a vast undertaking?
Answer: Any way you want.
The good news is that there is a lot of help out there in the form of books, writers' conferences, and even web resources. Start anywhere. The key here is one simple word: start!
In the future I will add more resources for you.
