memoirs have proliferated over the last two or three decades. I almost didn't think it was a good idea for me to do one, since so many existed already, and because I was heavily inspired by the one that pout the emphasis on Prozac, something I seemed to want to do. It was for that reason that I felt there already was a definitive book on the subject. I had to work through some pain to get put of that frame of mind and do what I had set out to do. And I did just that.
Though I haven't ben there yet, I know that I can expect some rejection of my work, especially the first time I try to submit it to anyone. Nearly everyone has faced this with their initial writing, so I know to expect it myself. I feel I'm already prepared for this.
