The first choice to make before starting to write is the tool to use. That can be paper with pencil, ballpoint or fountain pen, a typewriter or a computer/laptop with a text or word processor.
We don't recommend using a tablet or phone with only a touch screen for typing a story or poem, let alone a whole book.

If you plan to use a computer, don't forget to make regular backups. It would be painful if you lost your book due to a hardware failure or ransomware when it's nearly finished.

Hi
Thanks for this valuable suggestion. Actually, I want to make my career in story writing and poem writing. I am a college student and side by side I work as a problem solver. I help others to solve their issue regarding their love life, family problems etc. Can I write a book of all those stories ? If yes then how should I start ? And what would I do to publish it ?

What kind of book are you planning to write? An e-book or an actual book?

If you're planning to write an e-book, there are tons of online sites that would absolutely love to publish your work. Pay Google a visit, and you'll be overwhelmed with your options. It's actually easier than publishing an actual book.

If it's the latter, you could start by compiling all your poems and once you have a certain set of pages, let's say around 100 pages of poems/stories, headhunt for publishers around your area. Good luck!
