I'd like to write a memoir, but since I'm only 22 I'm not sure how much I can squeeze out of my life. Although I haven'y lived a normal life by far. I got sick at the ago of four, almost died, and spent six months recuperating, and relearning everything over a six month period. I've had to dela w/a lot since getting out, discrimination, being teased, etc. I'm just not sure how to tackle writing it.

Even though you're in your twenties, you have gone through a lot. As I said in another post, it's your take on what happened to you that makes it interesting. Use dialogue to move the story along, use action. Look at it from another angle. Maybe focus on how your life was going along quite smoothly until...your illness. How does a four year old feel? You know this first hand, others might not. How did you perceive the teasing?

No one's life is boring. It's all in the telling!
