Hi, I'm not looking for a beta reader, but for someone to read my very rough draft (or maybe just a section of it) and tell me if they think it has potential. I'm sort of new to the whole writing thing, and I have no idea if I'm on the right track or not. I know that my writing could probably use some heavy editing.

I'm writing a memoir about my experiences with mental illness and being delusional.

Anyone interested?

I suggest instead of writing a book
you can write your experience for
a magazine say Readers Digest .
I am willing to read it
I personally feel memoirs is difficult to sell
and you should not be further depressed

I can't offer to read your memoir at this time (I have someone in my life who has bipolar disorder, and I feel reading anything along those lines is just too close to what I've gone through and are still going through).

But here's a site that has links to other sites on memoirs and memoir writing. Maybe it'll give you some ideas as to whether you're headed in the right direction:

Good luck to you. :)

I could offer some editing help. PM me if you haven't already found a reader.
