    A idea just hit me, and I'm sorry if this isn't the right place to put this (I'm kind of new) but I'd like some feedback/advice.

    About 2 years ago a man, we'll call him John, took me into his home and welcomed me into his family, because I really had nowhere else to go and I was in the hospital (thats another story haha). Well this guy John, his best friend for many years was diagnosed with lung cancer, and John made a vow to be with him til the very end. So John follows his best friend..Will..around for about 3 years or so with a video camera, documenting his battle with cancer, his friends buying him a motorcycle, vacations, remission and it coming back, up until his dying day.

    John has like 50 boxes full of cassettes that he said I should watch sometime, and I think possibly writing about it would be awesome. Will died a year or so before I met John, yet I've always been intrested in Will.

    Well I've convinced myself its a good idea already, but I don't really know how I should tell the story, what POV (myself seeing all of this in hindsight, John, Will, etc.) if I should fictionalize it to an extent, changing some situations here and there blah blah blah.

    I guess you get the idea. Any feedback would be appreciated, It still needs some time for me to think about it, get permission from various parties etc.

    And I know this is way to big a project for me to take on, at least at this point in my life, and with my writing experiance, but I just really like the idea.

    Again pardon me if this is the wrong place to talk about this.
