bottom line is stay the fk out of trouble now, and don't give up. Keep your record clean and in 6 months talk to an attorney and try and have something happen with record. If that is not possible, then don't give up, be honest and someone will see weather or not you care and really want to try and they will help.
Has anyone ever tried to get a book published about their lives etc .. ?
Here’s everything you’ll need to know in order to get your foot into the door of a literary agent and give yourself a chance. It’s not a guarantee, but it will help you in a lot of ways.
Writing a book takes more than just sitting down and putting your idea into words. There are a lot of things that you have to consider.
Keep an eye out for spelling and grammar errors. When typing fast with fresh ideas in our heads, we tend to forget ourselves. Check and recheck your work. Editors are very expensive these days. When checking your work over, try not to put too much trust into Spell Check if you’re using MS-Word or any other writing program. Words can be spelled correctly but used in the wrong context. Spell Check will not find those as being an error.
You’ll need to know how to write an effective ‘query letter’ to a literary agent. The letter will also include a synopsis that will hold the interest of the agent, and want to make him or her ask for the first three chapters of your work. Never send a manuscript to a publisher or literary agent without querying first. There ‘are’ some publishers who will allow this, but you have to make sure you follow the guidelines for submitting to a Tee.
You’ll need to know how to format your manuscript. This includes the fonts (size and type) that most agents, editors, and publishers want. These are usually Courier New and Times New Roman (12 pt). Short stories and novels are formatted differently. You will need to follow submission guidelines just as they are laid down for your submissions. Anything less will result in your manuscript sent back or destroyed unread.
You will need to know what Point of View (POV) is. Know how to write in First Person Point of View. You’ll need to know the can and can not of each.
Do you know how to write dialogue? How to format dialogue? This is very important and allows the author and his/her characters to communicate with the reader. Remember dialect as well. Dialect is how a person speaks. Your characters may be highly educated or dumber than dishwater. ‘Ain’t got none’ is highly acceptable when used properly by a character who is even less than street smart. Keep in mind that it’s not a good idea to have two or more people speaking in the same paragraph. Each person speaking should have their own paragraph. Some may argue this point, but to be plain and simple, it’s not the right format. It’s confusing and it’s very amateurish looking.
It’s a good idea to know some of the publishing laws. The use of names and places.
o Delivery Of Satisfactory Copy
o Permission for Copyrighted Material
o Proofreading and Author's Corrections
Learn how to get a ‘word count of your work. Some novels have a prologue and an epilogue. You’ll need to know how to write them and why they’re used.
One of the most important issues in manuscript submitting is the proper ‘page set up’ for your work. This includes margins, indents, and paragraphs. Most editors will want to see your manuscript double spaced. This allows the editor to use his/her proofreader’s marks between the lines. Most margins will be one inch all around with a ragged right margin and an even left.
Are you prepared to do a lot of ‘research’ involving your work? Remember that many professionals such as, doctors, lawyers, nurses, public accountants, judges, architects, bricklayers, engineers, and police officers read, too.
Do you know what a sub-plot is? This is a plot that comes ‘under’ the main plot. The hero may be after the vampire, but the mob may be after the hero as well. This is a sub-plot.
Can you take rejection and constructive criticism? If you’re easily hurt in the feelings department, then writing may not be your forte. Critics will tear you apart or build you up. The best writers in the world “King, Patterson, Koontz, J.K. Rowling, and many others” have been torn up one side and down the other. You can’t please everyone.
Remember that if you are a minor you can’t get into a binding contract without your parents or legal guardians consent. Literary agents and publishers will remind you of this. If writing a book about your own life, you’ll need permission from anyone you mention in your book.
You’ll need to get a copy of Writer’s Market for the current year. This has literary agents whom you can send out query letters to. Some of them allow email queries. They also have a website. Google: Writer’s Market.
I wish you the best of luck!
how to live life to the fullest?
hi mike, actually you know what there is no problem in your life if you see with open eyes.
1.first problem of your's is you are worrying about future, what you are worrying about. do you know what is the main problem about future at your age, that is to decide what you want to be. and you know that clearly. if you know what you want to be then don't worry about your future at all. and the most good thing is you are interested in it. you will love your carrier if you know what you like to do and when you go in that line.
2.and the thing you can do about the past is just forget about past that is gone, it will do nothing good for you. just be busy in other things that is your present and future.
3.everyone in this world is different and everyone is beautiful in their own way, and if you want something more do smile every-time and be confident always. with these two things anyone ugliest in this world can look awesome.
4.focus on yourself, what other people think about us that is none of or business. change your attitude.

7. i think you have social anxiety because of your negative thinking, i can understand your situation as you lost your parents. i know what you have gone through, it can make any person negative in their lives. but you have to overcome it. as we cannot change the past, may be your parents are seeing from some other world they don't their child to be unhappy, so just be positive and happy in your life.
if you will start loving yourself every problem like self confidence, social anxiety worries and stress will go from your life.
