    Originality is nothing by judicious imitation. The most original writers borrowed one from another.

    It's not ...

    Famous people already have their obituary just about complete ... just waiting for a few last details. Writing it allows one to reflect on your life and either be happy with it or recognize some changes need to be made - BEFORE - it's too late.

    I've done it dozens of times, once as Julius Ceasar, once as J. Edgar Hoover. It's fascinating.

    Seriously, it's a good exercise.

    I had a few people give me their obits when they knew they were dying. Once, a family member completely gutted and rewrote it after she (her mom) died, taking out all the stuff about the siblings and adding stuff about herself (the daughter). Ahh, capitalism.

    Or, don't be stranger...

    Seriously, though, that's an interesting idea. Thanks!
