Is it possible to have had too much adventure in your life? I’ve made a list of all the things I’d like to include in my autobiography, but if I wrote about them all, the book would probably be 3 times too long for most people to want to read. I’m also worried about how it spans time. To cover nearly 50 years of someone’s life you have to get through a lot of periods where not much was going on. I’m starting to wonder if maybe a semi autobiographical approach could be better. I could condense the events, and use a little poetic license to the crop the story into a more manageable size, at the same time keeping the action going all the way through. What problems might I encounter with this style? Thoughts please?
