6 Tips for Writing Your Life Story
Find a method of writing your life story that suits your schedule and personality. It can be autobiography, memoir, diary-writing or a collection of personal essays.

You don't have to begin with the day you were born. Think about one of the most interesting or exciting episodes in your life, and begin there.

Consider your audience. While it may be mostly family members, if your life story survives for generations, it may also be valuable to a social historian one day.

Try to find a class or writers' group (or start your own) to help motivate you and to give you feedback on your writing.

Read other people's autobiographies and memoirs to get a feel for how other people have written their life stories.

Think of your life-story writing as one of the most important things you can do.
