I should actually try the examples I write. Here's a version that should

  (require (for-syntax syntax/define))

  ;; silly lambda that just runs body twice
  (define-syntax-rule (my-lambda (x ...) b)
    (lambda (x ...) b b))

  (define-syntax (my-define stx)
    (syntax-case stx ()
      [(_ . rst)
        (define-values (id rhs)
          (normalize-definition stx #'my-lambda))
        #`(define #,id #,rhs))]))

  (my-define (f x) (displayln x))
  (f 3)
