Kind of depends on how long you make the chapters, right?

Zebra Seasoning said...

None. I'm sure as hell not going to write one.

I bet one of Bernie's chapters would be that shit show debate CBS ran last night.

None because I ain't writing one.

Zero. I could never be arsed to write it and it would boring, boring, boring followed by more boring. Any juicy family stuff, particularly previous generations, would be red lined by the matriarch.

Unknown said...

Only one chapter but the chapter would probably be very long.

69, of course.

Very short chapters, but still.

Kansa said...

Maybe 4 chapters. The longest one would probably be And Then I Spent 14 Years Working at a Place Where People Think They are Really Important. The best chapter would be about life with my husband. The last chapter would be If You are Reading This Then I am Dead. It would be pretty short. "I died. The End."

Regina said...

10 chapters

"A Dance to the Music of Time" by Anthony Powell (an English guy with lots of friends in the entertainment world of England circa 1930-1960) is 12 volumes long, each volume has somewhere between 20 and 30 scenes, in which the writer figures as an important character in about half of the scenes, and as an incidental character in the other half. So that would be - if we consider "a scene" to be the equivalent of a chapter - at most 15 times 12 chapters in which the writer was basically writing autobiography, or 180 chapters.

"Remembrance of Things Past" by Marcel Proust (a French guy with lost of friends in the entertainment world of France circa 1895-1925) is about twice as long as "A Dance to the Music of Time", with about the same proportion of real autobiographical chapters and chapters where the writer is an incidental character, so that would be 360 chapters.

I have spent almost no time in the entertainment world, which means it would take me longer to explain my life and the life of my friends because me and my friends were not in the business of expressing ourselves, so I would have to go into a lot more explanation about my friends, so I guess my autobiography - or the autobiography of anyone like me - would have to be more than 360 chapters long. And trust me I am not all that interesting of a person (God thinks I am interesting but THAT BEING SAID God thinks almost everyone is interesting).

I just want my headstone to say, "Her attitude was as big as her ass."

Unknown said...

About two chapters because I can't remember shit.

More Cowbell said...

Fifty two.. Short chapters for each year of my miserable but amusing life. :)

Do Tell said...

I think I'd need two or three books.

OKay said...

Well, are we doing one chapter for each year, or one for each adventure? In any case, there would be quite a lot of them.

Depends upon how long I live.
