HOW TO WRITE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY
When writing an autobiography,
you focus on five major parts of your life:
How life began, what life means to you, your
life experience and where you are in life,
what your outlook and future is on life and
finally your life conclusions. Your
autobiography could spread over numerous pages
or just a few. Include photos and memorabilia.

"Autobiographies have been
written since A.D. 400 when an early Christian
leader, Saint Augustine, wrote his." An
autobiography is information about one's own
life written by that one person. In it, it
tells what that person's life is all about.
When writing your own autobiography, use
interesting facts to explain as much about
yourself as you can.
How your life began
The first things you do when
writing an autobiography is start off with a
lot of facts about your life; for example,
your name and your parents name, where they
came from including their family history, when
and where you were born, where you lived,
where you spent your childhood, where you went
to school. You have to give a lot of
information so your reader can clearly
understand your beginning. Once you have
written this introduction, you are ready to
start your second Chapter of your
What life means to you?
In this chapter you should
state how you see life--what does life mean to
you. Are you happy or sad? Do you have a lot
of friends or just a few? How do you make your
days go by? Do you have a relationship? What
are your favourite places to go on?
Your life experience and
where you are in life?
When you are writing
this part of the autobiography, you usually
explain the type of person you are; use facts
about yourself such as: have you won any
awards? Did you achieve anything? State any
changes throughout your life! Remembering any
events in your life! Your personal and family
What is your outlook on life?
In this chapter you should
explain what you think of your life and what
the future will be like. Explain through your
eyes: Where will you be in the future? What
your expectations of the future, good or bad?
Would you have changed
anything in your past? If so what?
is the last chapter of your autobiography and
an important one, too. In the conclusion you
usually try to re-word the introduction and
add some type of closure to bring the whole
autobiography together, and how you would like
to be remembered?
