    If you wrote a book about you what would the title of your autobiography be?

    Would your book be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about your life...or would you only write about the things you consider good and not embarrassing, etc.?

    I think I would take my autobiography title from a Movie: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly ....a life well lived by Babs Hunt.

    And I would tell the truth even though there would be some embarrassing moments for sure.

    ''A Biography of Life learned the Hard way''....


    or...

    ''Here , there and everywhere. The Diary of an Eclectic life"


    ...and yes I would write it warts and all...

    Whatever the title would be, it probably would be a short, boring book.

    It would be the truth, since I don't have any major embarrasing moments
    just did my job whatever that was at the time.

    If you remember the old waffle makers that had that light on top telling you it was ready,
    that might be the title of the book, " Waiting for the waffle light..." since it seemed
    I was always in the 'hurry up and wait' mode most of my life.

    And since Angels always tell the truth I guess you would be telling the truth in your book too Chrissy? o_O

    Well, might have to change the title to "Fallen Angel" then. :)

    Maybe just one chapter would be called that...

    Hey, that pretty good. What I might have chosen had I thought of it, but I wouldn't have been so truthful. Now, what would I choose?

    I couldn't write an AB. And be truthful. At some small stages of my life I have been a bad boy. Mine would have to be a Memoir, selectively written.

    I would tell the truth, mainly because my story wouldn’t make sense without it. By the time I was 13, I had already acquired an undeserved reputation, so others labels contain no threats for me.

    My AB title would be, “Life’s Learned Hapless Installments “. :oops:

    Mine would be the truth, even though I'd have to admit about making mistakes in life.

    Title........still thinking about that one.

    One of the Chapters in my autobiography would be taken from a songs lyrics: Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places.

    And the last Chapter's title would also be from a song's lyrics: Now I've Had the Time of my Life. :)

    That's one of my chapters too, @Babs Hunt.

    My first chapters would be very boring and you'd probably skim them, but there were some wild times even in my angelic life.

    You'd want to buy the book just to read them...you could only read those chapters if you paid for the book, they'd be sealed. :)

    My first Chapter would also come from a song: I Have Been Blessed :)

    In fact I'm thinking every Chapter in my book could probably come from a song title or a lyric in a song. :)

    I'm sure there would be a few people that have known me through the years who would buy my book just to see if what they gossiped about me was really the way they said it was or not...or even the truth.:p

    Clever Babs!

    But in my contract it says those chapters will be removed when it gets to the library. :)

    My budget doesn't let me buy to many books lately Chrissy...but you can bet I would have my name on the Library list for checking out your autobiography as soon as it is available. :)

    I’d buy @Chrissy Cross’s book, just to see how angel really live, especially as children. So @Babs Hunt you could read my copy, but if it’s a first addition I want it back. :p

    Now if our titles are going to have song titles mine would be, “What Condition My Condition Was In”.

    In our autobiographies the Title and Chapter titles can be anything you want it to be Ina. :)
