Thanks for an encouraging article! I have often thought about starting to write down my life story but have not yet started. Really, getting where I am now from where I started has been an unlikely and incredible journey. Sorry to be morbid but that is the fear!
I will now make a commitment to start somewhere…including the good, the bad, and the truly ugly in hopes my dwindling family will have some history to take forward with them. I just finished writing about my life from as early as I can recollect to present, been through quite a bit …also have audio files, the process has been very emotional but well worth it. I now have to type out and put it all together. Still learning how to get it all together.
Do I start off…As a little girl I remember…. Although I have already published my memoir Tracing My Footsteps but I still find this article very helpful. One thing good about it is that it is very easy to understand and follow step-by-step. May be if I decide to come up with my next memoir or bring out a second edition, I will use it as a guide. I want to write my memorize which is amazing beyond belief. I am just ordinary person with very powerful force within which is to bless individuals who later became very very famous. Not one but very many of them. All of them are alive except for two of them.
Freddy Mercury Queen and Wangari Mathai noble peace prize winner. I have met them when they were ordinary persons but with ambitions. My blessing removes all the hurdles and they acheive their desire. If anyone can help me to write my memorize, I will be grateful and share the income. My income will go to saving the enviroment. The memorize include two individuals becaming head of states of nations and one as first lady of the nation. The rest are ones who became rich businessmen from poor background. How to begin has bothered me more than anything.
The Structure of an Expository Essay
A few days ago this came to me one morning. White aching knuckles gripping into the sides. I realised where I was. I started by writing an brief overview of the various major events in my life. This was actually for someone who wanted to know a bit about myself, and how I came to be where I am.
A bit tricky as some elements span countries; link back to places or people that are earlier in the timeline; and influenced by other elements. Some parts can be missing, but still leave the picture intact. My intended audience are my children, and possibly family members down the line. What shaped me as a person, in some way may have had an influence on their lives. What I need to understand is correct grammatical structure and punctuation. They are the brushes. The anecdotes are the colours and tones, shifting slightly each day. But, in reading the comments of other readers who also want to write autobiographies, we all have such trials and tribulations to tell.
It is our profound power of existence itself that we are able to give things meaning, value, worth. The autobiography will be special because it is special to you. Your sincerity, your thoughts, your feelings, your choices, are just a part of history as anything else. To keep these stories of your tribulations to yourself, as typical as they may be, is to deprive others of their history. If one does not see value in your autobiography then give it that much value yourself, for them. As I was just about to finish my masters I made the mistake of complaining about poor care.
The hospital turned on me and I became an nhs whistleblower. I got sacked lost my job and career and felt suicidal on a daily basis for nearly 3 years. As a patient I was treated appallingly by the nhs. I eventually went to an employment tribunal where I defended myself and won, unfortunately whistleblowers get treated appallingly by the nhs and its very rare to gain employment after this. So you got a degree and want to write pages about your nhs degree. There are blind women teaching children English in Tibet. Something unusual just might happen to you when you start working with your family's photo collection: You may suddenly get this urge to start writing about what's happened to you in your life and why it meant so much to you.
Fantastic, right!? A memoir , while it can be highly autobiographical, is not necessarily so. Yet another version could deal only with family stories I remember from growing up.
