Categories are another way to write your Story. You may write purely in the Categories field about topics of interest to you, or you may create Categories in order to cross-reference and index items in your Chapter Stories, such as “My Pets” or “My Education.” Each Category that is cross-referenced to multiple Chapters will show the places in your Story where you have indexed a mention of something pertaining to that particular Category. Thus, for example, when a reader scrolls through your Categories “My Career” (s)he will see all instances of your career, jobs, etc. that you have classified as such “My Career” related throughout all of your Stories. There could be a “My Career” reference in your teenage years (remember that hot dog stand job??), College Years, and many in your later years Chapters.
