I have a manuscript written already, I wrote it shortly after my mom and sister died. Just write it, you can search online on how to type a manuscript (there are rules, believe it or not) and then just type away. Make sure you save a copy to disc, that way if your computer crashes you won't lose your work. When the time comes, you may have to publish it yourself. Many a good author had to self-publish first.
May I ask what kind of book you would like to write?
It's kind of a cheap living, simple family life type book. Things I have learned from my grandparents, mom, and trial and error. Shaving the budget here and there, adding revenue to the family bank account, things like that.
but of course, i have different experiences, so different take on things. She's got stories from her life, as do I. It would be similar I suppose, but not the same. Recipes handed down, recipes i want to hand down, and so on.
It's good to have dreams and your lucky you not only have dreams but internet access so you can research all that while you write a book.
I read about Oscar Wilde and he would write the whole book in his head before putting it on paper and often put the whole thing on paper in a mattter of hours or days ( except when in french as he was not good at the language)
Write your book first... go over it a few times and make sure its perfect.
Then you are ready to shop for publishers.
