2-Writing A Biography

Writing A Biography

Over the course of a lifetime, an individual goes through a multitude of varied experiences. Some of these memories are good and relieving them could well make a person happy and gladden one’s heart. Some experiences can make one pensive and brood over days long gone by. Still other recollections can make one pensive and wish that things had not turned out and gone the way it had, and may even out-right hurt recalling those memories, while mentally going over the times spent.

 

Whatever the case, but a basic  fact remains that at times we all do get the urge to gather all such recollections, memories, remembrances and try and document them in the form of perhaps a book, journal or simple in a sheaf of papers, so that they are there to be accessed by us and ourselves for posterity.  

 

And herein comes the art of biography writing.

While the intention to writing a biography of oneself may perhaps be something which is the secret desire of many an individual, the fact that very few gather the courage, fortitude and patience to actually go through with the exercise is perhaps indicative of the inherent challenges in undertaking this specialized branch of the writing trade.

 

The mere fact that there exists a market for a bio writer is perhaps indicative of the challenges and issues inherent in undertaking the task of writing a bio which could have then been otherwise dealt with by oneself independently instead of having to take the services of a professional bio writer. Indeed, when one is allocating so many resources, with respect to time, energy, attention and a multitude of other aspects, it does probably make good business sense to incur a minor, marginal cost in hiring the services of a professional writer, and document the effort of writing one’s memoirs or a biography under professional help and guidance, so that the resulting document born of all the efforts is something commended, enjoyed and appreciated by the world at large, rather than failing to garner any appreciation at all.

 

Every task can be done either professionally and leave a good and lasting impression in the minds of the reader and viewer, or can be done as an amateur and leave an aftertaste in the mouth of the reader in that the task could have been handled far better at a minor cost, with significantly more returns to the effort made.
