I just got an informal acceptance notice for my article to PRIMUS! Backstory here and here.
I’m a little embarrassed that this draft was riddled with typos. But, accepted! Happy dance around the house! This is what I’m doing tonight:
(Ally McBeal animated gif with the dancing baby is shamelessly stolen from the internet.)
The small mistakes can be fixed, and I was tired, stressed, getting to the end of my rope, and grateful for some help from a very kind colleague and mentor with the final revisions on it. That minor issues were missed shouldn’t surprise anyone.
- Have an idea? Write it up and submit. Just try. And try not to worry that it won’t be good enough.
- Stuck on revisions? Little bits of effort, epsilons, can move you forward.
- Still struggling? Ask friends, colleagues, mentors for help.
- Finally success? Celebrate!
…but first thing tomorrow, I get to work on those last revisions and resubmit.
I am grateful, grateful, grateful to see this through and for all the help and encouragement I got along the way.
