How to get started in writing a biography

If you loved reading the previous section along with other articles here in Only Biography, then you might enjoy making your own biography of someone else. Perhaps you have a person that you look up to and would love to learn more about their lives and beliefs. Then you can make your own biography for them! See the guide below to help you get started: 

Consider the person you want to write about 

First up, be sure to think long and hard about the person that you want to write about. It should be someone that makes you feel inspired or interested. Otherwise, you might have the risk of losing interest later on while you are writing. The best way to do this is by doing a bit of reading on their life and whether or not you can write about it in your own way. 

One of the things you can consider is their achievements or beliefs in life and whether or not you agree with them. If you connect with your subject, then that means that you will be able to use that passion into whatever it is you are writing about.

Do your research 

Once you have settled on a person to write about, the next step is to do your research. This is when you will be doing some intensive reading on their lives from when they were born. In fact, you can even delve deeper into their lives and discuss the situation of their family or society before they were brought into the world. 

You can take note of your new learnings as well. It can be hard to retain all of that information if you only skimmed through the material. When you have all of the information you need, then it’s time to move on to the next part of the process. 

Start making an outline 

After you have the information you need, an outline is a must for you to stay organized. This is where you will come up with a series of events that your biography will follow. If you are writing and you’re troubled about what you will be writing, then you can always refer to your outline if you need it. 

One of the mistakes that writers make when they start working on a piece is when they get off the groove and swerve away from the topic at hand. It can be hard to stay on track especially if there are so many elements to be considered. 

Proofread, fact-check and ask for someone else’s opinion

Last but not least, don’t forget that your opinions are not the only one that matters. Although you are the main owner of the work, you can still ask for the help of those who you trust. Maybe it can be your family member, a best friend or your publisher. Either way, another person’s input will always help.
