    I would love to write an autobiography just to be able to leave something for my children to have of me in the future.

    Yes. I have been debating it for over 8 years now. I think the issues I have over come in my life could be helpful for teens who went through similar issues.

    I really don't know any one that hasn't considered writing an autobiography! I have been planning to write one; however, I do have college I still need to finish. Afterwards, more than likely, I will be writing one. Who doesn't want to share their experiences with the world? To me, writing an autobiography shows that you fully accept w2hat has happened int he past and are comfortable enough to share those experiences with the world.

    I’m doing the research for it every day. I keep track of major life events, I date everything I write for future reference. But at 22, I don’t think I’ve accomplished enough to actually start writing it. I’ve still got several books to write, not to mention the making of a movie or two. Marriage and kids, buying a house.

    When I’m famous, then I’ll write it. Till then, I’ll just keep doing research.

    I prefer the memoir to the autobiography. The difference is that the memoir focuses on only one apsect of your life: your family, your career, your childhood, your life in relation to your culture, etc. Autobiographies cover everything about your life from beginning to end. They are longer. Memoirs are generally more interesting than autobiographies.

    A couple of people have encouraged me to do so. Actually, I was approached once by someone that wanted to help me do it. I was not ready. Maybe, I am waiting for something good to happen, in order to end it in a happy note.

    My grandmother made me promise her to write mine. When she passed away two years ago I started writing it. I am editing it at the moment and hope to self publish in the next two months. I have lead a very exciting life full of twists and turns so we will see how it goes smile

    Yes, and I know what I would do. But it's a big job, and a lot of other writing has higher priority for now. Maybe after I'm famous, and people wonder how I did it . . .

    Maybe when I'm older and have more life behind me I'll consider it. As of now, not much has happened to me!

    I have tried and failed several times. At the end of the day, my life bores me to write about. But it works out, since the fact that I find my life boring inspires me to make it not boring, in hopes that one day I might be able to write about it. Thus I go to festivals, I've moved to foreign countries and back, and I try to take opportunities of funness as they come.
