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?

      I'm not sure I fully agree with "no tension and worry" in the process of writing, or any artistic process, especially visual, musical or a combination. If you think about Edvard Much, Frida, Kafka, Vonnegut - what led to the process itself was not worry-free. In some cases, it was suffering that brought about creation of masterpieces. It's individual, I guess.
