I'm considering trying develop a story based on the life of Dr. Jacques Delphin.

 

Here's the nuts and bolts of his life...

 

 

born into poverty in Haiti

wants to become a doctor

has no money or place to study medicine

publishes works of poetry written in French

profits

comes to America to study medicine and psychiatry

has long and productive career in psychiatry

serves as medical director for a behaviorial health outfit

goes into semi-retirement

takes on problem causes and those very upset with their current provider

meets Royal works wonders through conversation and medication with Royal

in retirement becomes a celebrated Jazz musician, performing with his son.

Go ahead and write it. At a bare minimum, you will get great enjoyment out of writing it out. Then when you're done you can decide if you want to share it with others. 

 

It's not hard to get published if you do want to share, and doesn't cost that much. My dad, in his retirement boredom, decided to start writing poetry. Much to everyone's surprise, he's really good. He's put out two books now. I don't think he's sold any of them, but he gives them to friends and family. (He IS on Amazon though, which is kind of a trip seeing your old man on there...)
