Are the two words “so what?” important in writing and reading an autobiography? They are very important. Without remembering these two words when you’re writing your autobiography you are most likely to go off and write things that have no relevancy to your life, the point you are trying to make, or you simply begin writing silly, unimportant events.
The reader must be able to say “so what?” and have an answer in your book. Otherwise, your story will be left on the shelf, if it even gets there. A story must have ideas, stories, etc…that are relevant to the rest of the book and also that are important. “So what?” is an extremely important phrase to keep in mind when you are writing an autobiography or any book.
