I like the ideas the other answers are giving you here, you could even do: You can begin from the Present and travel back. I believe that an autobiography is a great way to tell the world your story. And everyone's story should be told. On to the question I agree with a few others on the prospect that you should not start it with "once upon a time" or "my name is" etc.
This will bore your reader and they very well could put the book down as soon as they read that. Try to think of something captivating to enrapture your reader.
Was there a scary or very interesting experience you have had in your life? Try to start by telling that story.
Wiggin42 Student Think about the most interesting aspect of your life story. Perhaps you could start with some out-of-context dialogue that is totally bizarre.
This could grab your reader's attention.
Just don't be cheesy. Write what you'd like to read. If you are writing an autobiography, you could start with a quotation you very much believe in like "Never be late. For example, if you were going to write the entire thing in a formal tone and treat it like a history book, maybe start out with a more dry statement and maybe even in third person.
On the other hand, if the autobiography is somewhat fun and quirky, perhaps a better approach would be a really blunt statement of something extraordinary. For example, it could be a very very short summary of some really exciting anecdote like "My life almost ended at that Brooklyn crosswalk.
I'm glad it didn't though, because then I wouldn't be able to tell you about it". As you can see, this approach is much more conversational and fun, and therefore sets up the entire autobiography in the same manner. A secret, a wish, a dream, a quote, a belief, a fear, a love.
A favorite first line in a movie I liked was, " did I ever tell you about the time I almost died? You are interesting, something in there will catch fire once you open up and put it down on paper!

I would write a few body paragraphs first. What information about your life are you going to include? Once you do this, you can more easily draft your introduction.
You can start with a scene from your life, and go from there. The tough thing about writing is there are no true correct ways to start, but you have to know where you are going before you can write an introduction. The question could be an affective hook. How did it come to this? Once you've reached the end, you are under the impression that you've come full circle and you want to start again and then you realize what was written at the beginning takes on a completely different aspect.
Just like the books you read in your childhood, like Gulliver's Travels, that you read again as an adult and you find it's an altogether different book simply because you're a different person.I just need a good introduction or opening sentence for my autobiography.' and find homework help for other Essay Lab questions at eNotes.
