Writing an autobiography is a dicey thing.
On one hand, it could sound like I am the epitome of teaching (for twenty years), or an adventurer who worked tirelessly by my husband’s side in our hotel in Ireland (for three + years).
There is also the part where our three children were born and raised, guided through some bumpy roads, and netted us three grandchildren (I love that part).
I could make myself appear to be a well-educated writer who is part of an elite group that focuses on writing in the classroom (I bet you were thinking “elite group of assassins), or I could go all humble and refer to my farm country roots with a barn full of stories. (Now, there’s a book to read when it gets published!)
No matter what is chosen to go down on paper, none of it sounds real to me.
Basically, the bits of my life experiences have been carefully chopped into pieces, tossed into a blender, and ended up to where I am now.
