Books On How To Write An Autobiography

can someone tell me how to write a literary analysis on a book.

How to write a literary analysis:1. First determine what kind of book it is: is it a novel, an autobiography, a non-fiction book?2. Who is the NARRATOR of the story? (Who tells the story?)3. What is the style of the book? Is it comical? dramatic? satirical [making fun of someone]? tragic? matter-of-fact?4. Does the writer use plain prose? or lots of adjectives and descriptions?5. What is/are the theme/s of the book? For example, one of the themes of “To kill a mockingbird” is racial prejudice; another is justice; another is family relationships.6. Does the author use metaphors? For example, in the play “MacBeth”, the blood that Lady MacBeth sees on her hands represents her guilt for the murder of the king.7. Comment on any other interesting features of the book: are there quotations from poems, songs, newspaper articles? Are there recurring images such as roses, cats, knives, trees, etc?8. Did you enjoy reading the book? What did you think of it? Was it well-written? funny? hard to understand? boring? disgusting?9. What do you think of the writer? Would you like to read another book by the same author?

What’s a good book that has a lot of tips for writing a biography or memoir.

I have a few books on how to write (in general), but one thing I’d like to maybe read up on is how to write an autobiography or memoir story. Anybody have some recommended literature, or even a website?

Take a look at the website of nonfiction author Bradley Steffens. He has written biographies of J.K. Rowling, Emily Dickinson, Jesse Jackson, and Ibn al-Haytham. He has a button on the main menu for “Writing Tips” that links to a page http://www.ibnalhaytham.net/custom.em?pi… with 1-minute video clips from a speech he gave to California Readers, a nonprofit organization that promotes literacy, covering topics such as “Think Thematically” http://www.ibnalhaytham.net/custom.em?pi… “Fill in the Outline” http://www.ibnalhaytham.net/custom.em?pi… “Fact-a-Graph” http://www.ibnalhaytham.net/custom.em?pid=846465 and “Write in Old English” http://www.ibnalhaytham.net/custom.em?pid=846462 Good luck!

Writing an autobiography.

I want to write an autobiography about my life someday and hopefully get it published. The problem is that I am only 18 and not famous. When would be a good age to consider writing an autobiography on your life? If I ever did write one would I be able to have it published and could it be successful if I’m not…

Have you ever done anything of interest? I’m sure you think your life is very interesting, but few people lead such amazing lives that others care to read about them. You don’t need to be a celebrity to write an autobiography, but really you should have done SOMETHING of value to justify it, otherwise no publisher will care. Have you overcome some great obstacles in your life? Have you accomplished things nobody your age has done before? Have you had a profound impact on the lives of others? If not, get a blog instead. Your life is probably just as mundane as everyone elses.

how to start an autobiography.

What is the best way, I want to become an architect and this is for Northwestern University. I’m suppose to act like I’m 80 and i’ve finish a 300 word autobiography.

Is that the essay question where they want to see one page somewhere in the middle of an autobiography written when you’re 80. I knew a student who did a brilliant job on that. She actually started the page in the middle of a sentence, and then within the essay she referred back to incidents that you could assume were talked about earlier in the book. The essay ended in the middle of another sentence, as if this really were a page out of a book. She got into Yale.If this is that same question, you do not need to make up an entire autobiography–you just need to relate one incident in your future life.

It’s pretty much the same.Things you may want to mention in a biographical book review are whether it sticks to the facts or interprets them or speculates about them, whether it credits original sources, whether it reads more like a novel or an academic book, how it compares to other known biographies of the person.Here are some links (that you could have gotten just by googling “biography book review”):http://dannyreviews.com/s/biography.htmlhttp://bestsellers.about.com/od/memoirs/…http://www.woopidoo.com/reviews/books/bi…

How to writ autobiography.

Wanting to write an autobiography any ideas on how to start it?

Autobiographies are usually written by famous people. And usually, they start off at the first memorable part of their life.How I suggest that you begin writing your autobiography: reflect. Think about your achievements in life, think about things you’ve lost, you’ve gained through hard times, etc.I know it sounds cliche…okay, super cliche. But what you’re doing is writing a book about yourself. Therefore, like any other author, you’re going to need to know your subject. I know it may sound crazy, but very rarely does someone know themselves as well as they may think.You should categorize these events, and I suggest by life stage.You can divide them into any categories you’d like. And if you can’t remember too much from your earlier years, don’t be afraid to ask family members to help you out a little bit. :)Okay, after all of that, you should be able to start the actual writing progress. Depending on what you want the mood to be of your autobiography, that is how you’ll start. If you want it to be lighthearted or funny, start with a funny story/event. Or you could start with your early achievements.In the end, it all comes up to you. You’re the only one who has ever lived your life. If you want some real hardcore help, you can read some autobiographies for some examples.

how do i write a book review.

I have to write a book review on an autobiography, how do I write this kind of book review and how is the book review supposed to be structured. Also what are the steps for writing a book review? Can someone give me an example book review to make things easier.

Decide how long you want your book review to be, then -1. Begin with a brief introduction about the work you are reviewing.2. List its literary merits and demerits.3. Understand the motive of the writing itself – most autobiographies are more than a narcissistic attempt at self-glorification.4. Sum up your impression of the book – did it affect you? did you like it at all? what did you learn from the author’s life?The key to a good review is professionalism. Do not give into your personal prejudices while examining any piece of work. Remember you have to be objective. Don’t shy from praising it if you really like it; and NEVER shy from ripping it to shreds if it wasted your time.

What does life mean to you.. are you happy? Sad? Do you have a lot of friends or just a few? Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?3) What is your outlook on the future? Explain what you think your future will be like. What do you want to do when you’re older?.. or what do you think you’ll be doing in 20 years?4) Conclusion. Try to re-word your introduction.

  2. I think you would have more luck with a Memoir then autobiography….its gouing to be very hard to publish if you are not famous or infamous.

  3. Unless you call it a work of fiction, you should read Diary of a Nobody by George Grossmith,.and then maybe you could start work on a modern version

  4. i could probable never write an autobiography in simple terms through fact i’ve got not relatively executed something nicely worth writing approximately. i’m an average and standard man or woman who hasn’t executed something stunning that any one can be drawn to. I doubt absolutely everyone could be harm by employing something I had to assert. i think if I have been to offer my opinion on each man or woman i could ever met, i won’t be able to think of each thing I had to assert could be good, so possibly somebody would desire to probable be indignant. yet I have not got any objective of ever writing or publishing an autobiography. I shop diaries/journals, and that’s extremely probable the closest i’m going to ever get. i think of writing an autobiography could be perplexing through fact i could prefer to pass all of the areas i do no longer prefer human beings to understand approximately, and if so, it is not likely real anymore.

  5. The moment in time where your life changed so drastically, you think it’s worth an autobiography already.

  6. Start with your biggest achievements or struggles that you’ve overcome.

  8. Writing about yourself is never an easy task. You really should start with “timelines”, but it’s more than that. Start by outlining the obvious events on your life, such as your birth, first day of school, graduation, first love, etc. Then go deeper and outline the events that you feel were important and helped shape who you are today. Remember the situations, the conversations, and how you felt during each of these pivotal moments in your life. Try and relive them as vividly as possible. Then write them down. You can organize them and piece them together later. Organization isn’t so much a key factor in an autobiography as is accuracy and emotion. You want the reader to experience your life through your eyes. Write accordingly and you won’t have any regrets. 🙂

  9. If you are supposed to be writing as if you are 80 years old, it is obviously NOT going to be a real autobiograph, but rather, a fictional autobiography! So, you say that you want to become an architect, then write as if you HAVE been an architect; describe what you have designed, your successes — any failures you might have experienced. Good luck with your admission application; Northwestern is a great school!

  10. Just go right into the first event. Dont say “Alot of things have happened in my life..blah blah..this is an autobiopgrap-NO. Go straight into the writing. It will sound alot better, trust me. If you need further help, dont be afraid to email me! (:

  11. Start w/ English a hundred and one. You want a few support w/ spelling and grammer. I’ll admit, mine is not that first-class, however then, I am now not seeking to write a booklet. You could additionally try to take a typing or computor elegance additionally. Otherwise there are a few web sites available in the market for humans to put in writing reports on, now not definite wherein, however I recognise any person who does it.

  12. write duh i thuught your in northwestern please

  13. I am not good at making outlines although I truly believe they are a valuable tool in writing.

  14. That said, I have learned that if I get stuck on beginning it’s best to Just Start Writing! Often, once I get going one thought naturally leads to another. It is often after I write a paper or story that I have a good grasp of how I want to go back and introduce it, when I have a better understanding of what it is I have to say. By the end I know what will catch the readers attention based on what I was most passionate about, what I found most intriguing or enlightening, etc. You can write “a beginning” for the story first, but you won’t know what is relevant about it until you have processed it some. An architect designs the building itself, and then the foundation based on the building’s support requirements. For me, it’s the same idea for writing.
