When you know in your heart that your story must be told, write it. It is good to journal with dates and facts.
Always let your heart and soul guide you and when you begin put together a 1-2 page summary of the main theme, The plot thickening and your goals.
I had an important, crucial message to send; when you do make sure you deliver it.
