Chapters are a way to cross index and categorize topics that may occur through several (chronological) Stories inside your Story Chapters.

The Story of My Life is a great way to organize your life Story for future generations. When you write your Story, you may start with either Chapters or Categories. Most people will start with Chapters as they are based on a chronological ordering of events in your Life Story. Examples of Chapters could be anything such as "My Early Childhood" or "My Teenage Years". Another example, many people enjoy the company of many different pets throughout their lifetime. By setting up a "My Pets" Category, a reader can click on the Category of "My Pets" see all Stories in your Story of your Life that have anything to do with your pets.

There may be a time when writing by Categories makes more sense. You may start by writing about a particular topic, OR you may establish a list of Categories and when you write your Chapters (based on the chronological timeline) you can then assign Categories to Stories to easily index and cross-reference items in your Story. Any reader may then view your Story chronologically or by Categories. Category examples could be "My Travels" or "My Career" or "My Grandchildren".
