I have never kept a diary, and some time back I thought it would be fun to work on some sort of autobiography to note down any memorable events etc. I am not famous, and even if completed the 'audience' for this is basically going to be a few relatives & friends, besides having it serve as a substitute diary to chronicle past events.
Besides being an unknown, I am also not a writer, and do not know how to plan books or anything longer than a short technical article. How should I prepare and attempt to write an autobiography if I'm aiming for an interesting and factually correct read?
- Chronological order or some alternative arrangement (interactions with particular people? Aspects such as school life, entertainment etc.?)
- How do I start & pace myself to try and sustain interest in this project?
- Its unlikely to ever see print of a single copy; so should I take advantage of any digital features (better hyperlinking, multiple data views) by aiming for only digital version?
