We will learn the pros and cons of self-publishing or submitting to a publisher.
History books just give an overall perspective of epic events. My legacy to my families future generations will be an autobiography.
Just think of how many would be interested in reading your story.
Leave the legacy of your memories on this earth to your children and grandchildren by telling YOUR side of the story.
Where were you when JFK was shot or when the Twin Towers fell?
Here are a few more to ponder:
1964 The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show
1969 Neil Armstrong- first man to walk on the moon
1973 Roe vs. Wade legalizes abortion
1977 Apple II first mass-market PC
1989 World Wide Web invented
One way to write your autobiography is to write down each year from birth year to present and start jotting down your favorite memories. Just use the “notepad” or other writing program on your computer. If you don’t like computers, write the year on the top of a piece of paper, with a piece of paper for each year, and just write where you were that year. It’s a start.
It has been a lot of years since my autobiography began. Maybe yours will sit a long time, too, but whatever you get down on paper, your loved ones will find eventually and treasure that little bit of you.
Now It’s Your Turn
Many of you are interested to hear my story. I am counting on you to help me by critiquing parts of my biography as I write it.
If you’d like to see parts of my autobiography, let me know, if you haven’t already, and I will send you parts of mine as they are written. Critiques are appreciated. Don’t worry about spelling or grammar, but do tell me if it is confusing, unclear, if you’d like to see more detail, anything that you think would help make it more readable.

Following are a couple of guidelines to follow for critiquing.
Read once just as a reader
General impression-who would enjoy this, did you, did it make sense?
Read again as a writer
What needs changed?
How can I make it better?
