When to write a book?

"You should write a book about that"...a common in response to an experience shared with another...but should I? What makes a story so compelling that it needs to be authored and published?

    Apr 21 2013: Use of language and style. Know your audience, and the audience you want.

    I've attended tons of the international writers workshops and they all reach down to the core of what I mentioned above, along with other fluffy stuff.

    Readers can sense your passion in-between the lines. If this is what you love doing then shoot for the stars, second doubting yourself becomes irrelevant so remove the "should I?" and practice your writing techniques.
