If I was you, I'd just start writing!

The hardest part is staring at a blank page. Once you get going, it get's easier.

Don't worry about it being perfect - you can always edit it later. It's a lovely feeling editing your work into something good!

Maybe write a loose (one page) plan of how you'd like it to go, beginning, middle and end, and take it from there.

Good luck!

I have no experience of this, but if it was me, I would begin by making a list of your 'events' in brief, in some kind of chronological order. Then start with number one in the list, writing a more detailed version of it... and so on.

 

I think a good way to start expanding on your story, would be to voice record it, imagining that you are talking to a friend. You can then edit and 'audio type' it up later.
