Mark Twain’s Disjointed Autobiography

If you read Mark Twain’s autobiography you will find it disjointed and a little hard to piece together. Twain tried several times to put together his autobiography with no success. He finally came up with the one we now know of. We should learn from Twain’s mistakes so that we can write better autobiographies. One of the best ways to write clear and understandable autobiographies is to take good notes of events that happened in your life. When writing these notes you should include major events that will inform the reader about your era. Dating the notes will help you to chronicle them accurately. An autobiography that is not in order will confuse the reader. Taking notes or writing a journal will make your autobiography more understandable.
