From a famous writer or celebrity, to a WordPress.com blogger or someone close to you — who would you like to be your biographer?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us WORDS.
I can’t imagine someone actually writing my biography. I have written my autobiography and am trying to publish it. It is the story of my conversion to Islam and my life. I just felt led to write it and will eventually self-publish it.
But it would be nice to have a real author write by biography. If you are going to have someone write your biography, you should select someone who knows what they are doing in this area. So I have selected Doris Kearns Goodwin. She is a famous biographer. She has written about the Kennedys and Lyndon Johnson. She was also a speech writer. She has also written other biographies. The woman is a star.
I think she would do a great job in writing my biography. She would research all my early years, seeking out people I knew and getting quotes from my friends and anecdotes. She would analyze my life and do a very good job. I might not come out just like I would like to be, but she would be fair.
So that is the person I would like to write my biography. I would be honored if she would write it. Here’s to you, Doris Kearns Goodwin. Thank you.
