Writing Quote: Autobiographies Are How The Authors Remember Their Lives, Not Necessarily How They Lived Them

Autobiographies are written as their authors remember their lives, which may or may not be the way it really was. Autobiography has a limited market with commercial publishers unless the author is already well-known or has had a most unusual and interesting life.

Doris Ricker Marston, A Guide to Writing History, 1976
