Have you ever asked yourself the question - who am I? What have I achieved, what mark will I be leaving in this world? I do - all the time! All these questions make me want to write it all down, leave something in this world so that people know I existed, that I created a family, had a career, had dreams and fears and hopes.
I want to state who I am, shout about my achievements, from the moment my child was born to the day I decided to start my own business. I am a human being and I want there will be more than just a headstone to tell the world that I lived and loved in it.
It almost sounds morbid that I am thinking about what happens when I am gone, but it is true. So I decided to sit down and write it all out. What a mistake that turned out to be! I spent absolute hours working on this document and being a perfectionist it just seemed so shoddy. (Not like me at all!)
I thought maybe I could get someone to help me, to write it all down, an author or a copywriter and that also was a road best left untravelled as it cost so much money. Ridiculous really, but these people have to earn a living I guess.
I have found www.autodotbiography.com, a website that seems to fit the bill perfectly - I get to answer all these questions about my life, input all my photos (something I had not figured out how to do when I was writing my own version) I have not signed up yet - I wondered if there was anyone out there that had already done it? Has anyone done it themselves and gotten self-published?
I should feel good about it but....
