I think my life is better left in its original format...real. Experiences we have in life sometimes are the best tools to helping others who find themselves in similar circumstances. It can be a source of strength to others to know that this person persevered and overcame obstacles. Sharing the good, the bad, the ugly in various writing genres can touch and strengthen individuals enduring the same type of issues.

...seems to be saying you wouldn't write your memoirs... but isn't that at odds with the rest of what you've written here?... i'm a bit confused as to what point you're trying to make...

Probably fiction but at the same time I want to my own thoughts in my own words. Laura Ingalls Wilder did it perfectly that is how I would do it. =)

Fiction, to spice things up a bit. My life story on its own would be a pretty dull read and I have never felt the desire to write my autobiography.

As much as I would like to say that the story of my life (or any one elses) would be based on fact, our mind does play tricks on us. Not to mention the way we interpret how things happened, our opinions and gaps that we fill in write it. It makes for a fictional account.
