Would you read it?
Do you give a thumbs up or thumbs down for reading an autobiography of my very complex life? (I'm only 28 so it won't be very long!)
Well, it WILL be read for whatever reason by a great many people, rest assured. As for your age, well idiot-boy Justin Bieber wrote an "autobiography" and it sold quite a few copies. I'm pretty sure yours will be far more interesting that that.
Hahaha! Thanks Surlyoldcat, not sure his was read for the same reason. He's famous, I'm not!
OK Mrprooper, I will inform Tim Burton to get cracking now because that's what my life has been like. One of his crazy quirky films! oooh I wonder if his pal Johnny Depp could star in it?!
A autobiography is a tough sell. Even for the famous.
It'd be better to adapt personal experiences into a fictional character.
Or, a self-help book if you've got ideas on how your stories can help people.
Of course, I think you should still write it. The stories must be important to you, otherwise the question would never arise.
So write it, decide after if you still want to try to publish and market an autobiography - or simply use the material in some other way.
I myself, never read autobiographies. The one exception being Bruce Lee. And only watch the biographies on TV if their of people I think I can learn from. Stephen King for instance, I'd watch. However, if it's an actor, then I don't really care.
Yes, I would read it. I believe that you would be surprised how much you have accomplished over your 28 years and could write a novel on your life experience.
Often people think that there own experiences are worth reading because his or her own experiences are important to them. Experience is subjective though,what you find interesting may only be interesting to you. In other words, everyone finds the story of their own life significant, it's part of being human... Most people could care less about another person's life story unless it impacts them somehow. If you are successful, people will read your story because they too want to be successful. If your character (who is in essence you) is endearing, it is because the reader sees themselves in the character - and that is the rule for all literature. You have to ask yourself if your experiences are only significant to you because they are your own. Have you seen some world changing - historical event unfold? Are you worth emulating because of your success? Have you experienced something that is entirely new somehow? If you haven't then my advice would be to use your experience to write fiction instead. I wouldn't read an autobiography about someone I had never heard of, simply because the cover promised that the stories are complex, and therefore interesting.

How did you decide upon and verify your own beliefs?As an atheist who constantly strives to learn and grow in a culture that is largely religious, I'm constantly engaging with theists of many types. Often, they provide philosophical arguments for the existence of God, but I've never met one...

Have you, or anyone you know of, ever had a close encounter? When did it take place? Were there any drugs involved? Did you tell the authorities? What race of aliens were involved? Was the experience angelic or demonic in nature? Did the ones who made contact with you seem good or evil? Did you...
