I've been unfair to QT writers by erroneously posting an introduction to a memoir in "Post Your Elevator Pitch" and " Synopsis Review", by not looking at what I was doing.

I want to post it still, but I don't see any place I could do that.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

If it's the actual start of the MS, it's "first five pages." We're pretty flexible about what goes in there. But again, while what you have written is interesting, it isn't attention-grabbing. If I'd read it at the beginning of a memoir, I would put down the rest, if only because I don't want to have to work as hard as I had to to understand your sentences for the length of an entire memoir.

It is the beginning, but outside the outline, I'm just starting.

Thank you.  So, I'm trying only this revised first page, again, and I am aware it's on me what happens.
