I don’t think my biography is worth to bother a writer to spend his or her time working in a book. Nothing special, a normal life with some little adventures, but mostly a very boring stuff.  I like to write about my memories sometimes, but I wouldn’t like to see others writing about them, because there are mine. No one will touch them.

I wouldn’t like to see my life in a book written by another person who would sell it as a merchandise and under his or her point of view, maybe in conflict with mine, because my true life is not commercial, that’s for sure. Is not a good idea. Your life for $9.99 in the bookstores? What an embarrassment.

Is another story when the subject of the biography is a personality who have  big achievements or a very interesting story, and already died. Then you have a complete story to tell and it’s not easy. To write a biography you have to investigate and document and study the works and the life of the subject of your book very carefully searching a lot of sources and interviewing witnesses if they are available. A very difficult task. In the literature there are many good historic biographies of this kind.

But that’s not my case and I guess never will. Thank God I’m alive and when I die my average life will not interest a single biographer.

  1. Ive to repeat my posting though…
    Let me going the opposite direction. I love reading biographies but selectively because there are tons in bookshops.
    My objective among them in reading biographies is to read if humans turned animals or vice versa. When I die, I couldn’t care or less about biography those I left behind do whatever, goodly or badly written about me wouldn’t make me going to heaven or hell.
