Hey everyone, I just signed up to this forum and wondered if I could possibly get some advice about my autobiography which I am currently writing. I have made several attempts to start writing it over the years but never got past the first chapter. This time though is much different - I have written the first four chapters in the last 3 days! I'm just wondering - do I need to slow down a bit or should I just write, write, write? Also, how long should a typical chapter be? My first chapter is currently 1,700 words, chapter 2 is 2,700 words, chapter 3 is 2,800 words and chapter 4 is 4,000 words. I'm also having trouble deciding about names of people I have mentioned in the book. I will be revealing a hell of a lot of information throughout this book about people from my life that others do not know and I wondered, should I change their names? If so, do I do that myself or wait until sending it to a publisher and ask them to change names? That is of course if I do end up sending it to a publisher, also a little unsure what to do when I eventually finish writing! OMG, I'm so confused, hahaha! Any opinions would be gratefully appreciated.
