The first thing that we usually do is define the objective of the biography. It can be a personal project simply sharing the experience and the life-journey; or it can be a serious self-help introspective kind of book where you reflect upon your own life and give key take aways to the reader. It is important to define the objective because the writing style and structuring would be altered accordingly.
The next step in writing a biography is first recording the entire experience or the life-journey in a rough way and analysing it. Then we pick up what is relevant as per the objective of the book and start aligning it rightly. Once we ensure that the right fractions of life has been picked up and they are giving the right message, we start the writing process while understanding the voice of the client which is a critical point.
Voice means the way the client would actually narrate it – understanding the details of it by understanding the personality of the client and the way he or she converses. We pick up the kind of vocabulary used by the client and absorb the style – be it crisp, sarcastic, witty, simple or whatever else. The whole writing process is in alignment with the client and we keep sending written chapters for feedback which is duly incorporated.
Write to us and let’s talk about the biography that you have been thinking to write since long.
