Hi, I'm Laura from youngWritersWorkshops.com. And I'm going to talk about ways to write an autobiography. Keep in mind an autobiography is a story of your own life. But it doesn't have to be the story from the day you were born. Until, up to the current time. It can, in fact, it should be more of a story that tells kind of, chooses one important theme. Or one kind of, way, message that's your life purpose or your life story. Has to tell. So one helpful step can be to talk to other people. Get some ideas from people who know you. About what it is that your life means to them. Or what they've seen in your story. That can be kind of an organizing idea for your autobiography. Next you'll want to go, write some thoughts down. And maybe begin to put an outline together. An outline that can help you organize how you're going to tell this story. That's going to fall into place with your theme or you journey. Begin writing some drafts. And this can be a long process. But you'll want to get some people to read. And give feedback along the way. So organize your group of readers. And when you have a draft, have them read it. Get some feedback. And go back and make some changes. You can write as many drafts as you want. But try, again stick to that idea of an organizing theme or a journey. That your life, that composes your life story. So those are some ideas about ways to write an autobiography.
