What can you do now to make your biography less disjointed than Twain’s? Mark Twain’s real name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens. Mark Twain was just his pen name.  Twain was born on November 30, 1835 and he died on April 21, 1910 after a heart attack. Twain was “an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer.” He was lauded as the “greatest humorist the United States has produced,” and William Faulkner called him “the father of American literature”.” Twain wrote the famous books The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. My dad loves those books so much.

I recently read part of Mark Twain’s autobiography and it is very disjointed which means scatterbrained, not put together very well, back and forth a lot. There is a movie I like called Holes and it is very disjointed. You have to watch it a couple times to understand it. The movie goes into the past and back into the present so many times I could not keep up with the story line. The ideal autobiography I would want to read is a book on the important events in someone’s life. I do not care much for somebody’s life right from when they were a baby up to their death. To me, it is kind of boring. And I do not really like disjointed autobiography’s. They do not really make any sense. If I were to write my own autobiography than I would journal to keep all of my important memories in it. If you were to write your own autobiography than you would want to journal to keep all of your important memories in it. If you tried writing an autobiography without journaling, that would be hard. That is why if I were to write my own autobiography I would most definitely journal. Trying to remember things that happened ten (or more or less) years ago is extremely hard; even for me. If I were to write a autobiography for me or if someone were to write an biography about me, than here is how I would like it to be written. I would like it to start with why my biography was written. And then it would say my birth date and my death date (if I was dead at that time). Then it would say what extraordinary things happened in my life and why they were so extraordinary. I would also like the extraordinary things to go chronologically. And there would be no disjointed parts in the whole book. And at the end it would tell about how great of a person I was (if I ever was great, but I probably will be). The book would be a good book and it would never be confusing or disjointed or weird. It would be mainly on me and my successes (if I ever got any). It would never tell any unnecessary parts about my life or about anybody else’s life. And that is how I would like my biography to be written.
