<p>
	I’ve started writing my autobiography.
	I’ll keep writing it for the rest of my life.
	It’s private now, but will be released the week I die.
</p><p>
	I’ve written the last chapter, which is more of an afterword.
	(“Now I’m dead.”)
	So now I will just keep writing the middle chapters.
</p><p>
	My assistants, family, and friends will have instructions on how to publish it as soon as I die.
	A few clicks and commands and it’s published in all formats, print-on-demand, and ready to go the same day.
</p><p>
	So by the time you hear the news that I’ve died, the full story — the book of my life — will be ready to read.
	I think that would be a good goodbye.
</p><p>
	Don’t worry : I don’t plan on dying for a long time.
	My health is great and all is well.
	This is just my version of the old advice to “write your own epitaph”.
	I realized I can do better than that.
</p><p>
	And I wish <a href="/milt">the people I care about</a> would do the same.
