MEMOIR MANUSCRIPT SUBMITTED–OH, GOD!
Have just now emailed the manuscript of RANDOM ACCESS MEMOIR to the first publisher on my list of candidates who might be a good fit for such material.
And a year ago, I was lost in the wilderness, getting used to the idea that I was a “former writer” and wondering what I might do with the rest of my life. I was thinking maybe about university study. Ancient Roman history sounded good. It still does, actually.
Meanwhile, this book has erupted out of me, as if desperate to be born, in two months and ten days, without a break. Every single day, and often multiple times a day, I wrote essays for the book. I’ve never had an experience quite like this. Even if nothing comes of it, publishing-wise, I’ll always be grateful to it for waking up my writing mind, for getting the signal back. I missed it like an amputated leg.
