Yes, started. Finished. Hated it. Restarted it. Now it sits here next to me, taunting me.

I've started one, but I haven't worked on it in a long time.

LOL... from one writer to another pick it and get started again, stop doubting yourself you are holding on to the next best seller... Write, Write, and Write...

Eh, I don't know about that. If I had someone who didn't know me and would actually read some of it and tell me if it's even worth trying, it might be different. I've had some friends and family look at it, but they've all been so biased. Also, once it's written, I wouldn't know what to do next. LOL. Maybe someday. But thank you.

Just a little thought,

Don't make your mind do anything. Simply step out of the way and record your thoughts as they roll through you. Never stop doing writing practices because writing practices soften the heart and mind, helps to keep us flexible so that rigid distinctions between apples and milk, tigers and celery, disappear. We can step through moons right into bears. You will take leaps naturally if you follow your thoughts, because the mind spontaneously takes great leaps.

Writing and self publishing your own book will be a great leap,for you! Just believe in your work and believe in you.

A few self publishing companies

LuLu.com

Createspace.com

And

Blurb.com

All the best.

 LOL...I couldn't even tell you what I wrote about.  I didn't do it willingly...the teacher made us do it.  All the other years, we could volunteer.
