Writing an Autobiography

What is an Autobiography?

           

"an autobiography is a person's own biography, or written account of his or her life, distinguished from the journal or diary by being a connected narrative, and from memoirs by dealing less with contemporary events and personalities."

 

I               Writing your Bio for the back of your book

                *             write in third person

                *             list facts, not wishes

                *             list your experiences that are relevant to why you are writing the bio

                *             add a “hook”:  an unusual hobby, or event in your life may be an option

                *             add a photo if you have one – it lets people relate to you

                *             list any groups you are involved in:  writers groups, etc. that are relevant
