    An autobiography is simply a telling of your life thus far. Go check out the theatrical section of your library, many movie & theater stars have submitted autobiographies though admittedly many were written by ghost writers. Among the best are Hume Cronym's 'A Terrible Liar,' and Basil Rathbone's 'In and Out of Characters,' and Ray Milland's 'Wide Eyed In Babylon.'

    A simple formala: A) I was born in - - - and then enhance by giving details about both the community in which you were born and the hospital in which you were born. If you were birthed at home so much the better, one famous American politician speaks about his mother being laid out on the families two hundred year old oak dining table at the time of delivery.

    B) Then, first memories, you might have to embellish a bit, but always good for one's bio.....

    C) Then feel free to examine school memories; your first school, write sympathetic portraits of your past teachers that will thrill your current teacher, mix in anedotes about friends.

    D) You are young so best to adopt an optimistic tone; these are your first steps on the great journey.
