The following tips will enable you to develop the best biography you can.
Be brief and precise to the point. This is to enable the reader to easily and quickly get to know about you.
Be spontaneous in your writing, friendly but not too informal.
Be as expressive as possible and avoid too much of self-editing while drafting your biography in the initial stages to capture as much information as possible.
Be as true to your character as you can be in order to let your personality show in your writing.
Feel free to skip questions or sections that you are not comfortable sharing.  You can provide as much or as little information as you see fit.  Share what you want to share in the way in which you want it.
