Know where to start when writing narrative non-fiction
A lot of folks don't know where to start their story. In the book I have written with my writing companion, Cary Tennis, Finnish School, about the completion of your writing projects, but to get across the line, we often start training folks on how to get started. From my journalistic and authorial experiences, a good start contains two things that involve the reader: the bodily discription that plunges the viewer into a realm of your creations, but also a moments of high emotions, of losses or gains, of the feeling that something ends or the beginning of a search for an answer. There are two things that are important in my work.
I' ve written a story about eight young men who were killed in an occupied fire. and I followed the detective as he learned more about the deaths. I described the house in a story: where it was and what made it so precious that it was a worthwhile argument.

Typically, a journalist' s job description begins with the topic in the middle of a downturn or in a trusted environment in which he or she can think about what has led him or her to this point.
And the same applies to you when you write about yourself. Once you've created your history's beat lists, you' re playing with them to see which is the most convenient place to start. When you think that something is the end, try it as the beginning and tell the story in flash-back to see if that liberates you as a novelist.
An open and fun way to become a champion of your story, not one who finds himself desperate and bewildered by this big one. Explore the sequences until you find the right beginning that will create the story's universe and set the emotive note for what is to come.
