writing a book

so recently i've started writing a book. i plan to get it published or try at least and its going to be a rough memoir of my life from the start of highschool to now. i'll have flashbacks to growing up and several poems, written during the time that i am writing about in that chapter.

i guess i could use some help and advice. i've got a rough outline and a very short starting draft of a couple of chapters. any suggestions would be appriciated and if you would like to read what i have so far just let me know and i can email it to you if you provide an email address.
