What a great question! It gives me a chance to stroke my ego, which, like it or not, is a motivator for many people (I try to balance my motivations). Ego is the self-identity, and for you libertarians out there (and you know who you are), that's the definition of an individual human being. But ego can lead to hubris and pride, which ought to be purged of by the other side of the ego: self-criticism, sentience, the ability to fix your mistakes.
I'd like to be remembered as a writer. I never had any political aspirations. I just wanted to help people. I messed up a lot, and I'd like those things to be at my funeral too, to show my favorite trait about me: I change constantly, like water. My ego, if laid out on a board representing a timeline, would be ambiguous, paradoxical, and highly fractured.
I hope I can write more books when I graduate. I've self-published two for now (OMA: One Man Army & OMA: Part 2), so, if I died tomorrow, that would definitely be mentioned.
My pick for a biography title would be "Skinning teeth," because that's sounds so avant-garde.
