So I've written a memoire that I really don't want to leave it as such. I'd like to take the events and spin them into a story. I know I'm supposed to look for some common thread but since it's about something dark, I'm not sure which thread to focus on. Technically, it's a happy ending but not exciting. Do I make that ending the theme but adding exciting bits, and redo parts of the book that will tie that all together? I'm a little lost in where I start. Thanks.
