Nearly finished it now.

Going to go and say that yeah, it needs an editor.

'I was doing xyz from day dot.'

Paragraph later

'I was doing abc from day dot'

Interesting enough content and the mental hospital stuff is amazingly heavy shit, but needs some refining.

My mum has nearly finished it. Some feed back has been could have been edited a little more, but she has loved it. Working with a bi-polar person who has tried to take her own life at work, in front of everyone (35cm chefs knife to the wrist.. Seems she forgot she worked in a kitchen in a hospital though), my mum wanted to hear your story, and compare how some people use their illness as an excuss, and others ignore it and be awesome.

So i though't i'd just bite the bullet and read the preview this morning.

Wow. I think it's safe to say i am one big sook. Having tears in your eyes at work is really not that acceptable. Thankfully no one was looking at me lol.

Marshy, you actually have a pretty good writing style. I wasn't keen on reading a "memoir" as the people who generally write them are pretentious and can't string a decent sentence together. But wow, from the first paragraph of the preview i was hooked. This is absolutely one book i'd like to read. Mostly because mental illness plays a massive part in my entire family. Mental illness is still not spoken about enough or understood by people who haven't been touched by it.

I admire your courage to tell your story and your ability to keep moving forward no matter how many steps backwards you took on the way.

Thanks guys.
Interesting range of comments and I appreciate all of them.

I agree on some of the feedback re:editing, but that's the perils of self-publishing I guess.

After announcing I wanted to write a book some four years ago, it's been polish after polish, and in the end I realised I'd never be fully satisfied. I had an old friend who joined an amateur editors forum and she approached me out of the blue to edit the book. She did a fantastic job, and when I've noticed mistakes since - I looked back on her notes and sure enough she had spotted them.

I was speaking to a colleague the other day who had read it, and she said it's a great accomplishment but she thinks it's the sort of story that should be amplified to help others. I'm going to think about what that definition of "help others" could be and see what I can do to push it more outside my immediate networks.

If you've got your own ideas about how we could get it out there (or a lurking publisher ;-) please let us know as it'd be great to chat.

Feel free to review it on Amazon too, and if someone wants to write a blurb that does a better job of describing the content please feel free to, I was a bit lost there as it was hard to write about it without giving too much away.

It's been a humungous year and it's now coming to a close, thanks heaps Inthemix - the traffic on the forums aren't what they used to be, but I'll always appreciate the people I've met on here and even the ones I haven't yet who still say nice words.

Cheers,
Marshy

I've got a few ideas. Probably best sent through via PM and I'll do that as soon as I have time - probably not the book in its entirety, but definitely the excerpts on the mental health areas and things that you experienced there.

You should watch Silver Linings Playbook, deals with mental health issues, family and work life, and love delicately and intricately. Bradley Cooper is fucking Oscar worthy too.

I keep picturing what the characters in Marshys book would look like, but all I can come up with is parodies of Scooby Doo characters.

Unless Wags actually DOES look like Shaggy...
