Idea for a book

I think I'll just pop this here to invite feedback and suggestions. Idea for book: chronicle of my time at university (2004-2010) as a disabled man. How it changed me, how I got on, how I interacted with others. Mix of autobiography and exposition. 40,000 words or so. Possibly fictionalised. Deal with my semi outsider position. Slowly finding my place and gradually making friends. Incorporate my position as a blogger?

It's only a rough idea for now, but pretty much my only writerly output these days is here on my blog, and while I'm enormously proud of my work on here, I'm beginning to think that perhaps it's high time I got something longer and more sustained going too.

Why fictionalise it? I think your autobiography would be really interesting :)

Thanks mark. My thinking was, fictionalisation or at least semi-fictionalisation might leave me more room to play with themes and ideas; I could expand upon subjects, without having to stick too rigidly to what actually happened. Anyway I'm just playing with ideas at the moment.
