Two small words can be very important and meaningful. So – What? Usually when something is said, written or read, someone asks these two words. For example, let’s pretend you just bought a brand new pencil, and you go with your best friend and tell him or her, “Look, I bought a new pencil”, and your friend says, “So what?” Are you going to know what to answer next? Well, that depends on the circumstances.
Now, let’s look at that same question in an autobiography. I believe this question is a lot more important in an autobiography than with your best friend, because if “so what?” is not answered in an autobiography you might lose your reader, but in the case of the pencil, you obviously won’t lose your best friend.
In your autobiography, you have to include stories that will not only attract the reader, but will also answer these two words. If the interesting story is achieved, but not “so what?”, then the whole point of the story may be lost, and it may be considered as irrelevant. I believe no one would like for that to happen to their autobiography, and if you’re one of them, be sure to always answer “so what?”
