Yippee!

So you know how I agonized over that revise and resubmit? Well. Pending a few more minor revisions, IT SHALL BE PUBLISHED! I just received word today! Huzzah!

What this means is that it is entirely likely that I will have not one, not two, but THREE publications appearing in 2010 (well, or one may be 2011, but you see), of which I was sure of NONE of them as recently as THE BEGINNING OF MAY. So, the point here is that even when one doesn't think that the scholarship is going terribly gangbusters, it can be going gangbusters without you even knowing about it! And then people tell you they will publish your things! Like magic!

(Well, like magic with a lot of moaning and work and agony and slogging away and guilt and procrastination and buckling down and and and. But magic nonetheless.)

Yippee indeed. But what you said about the time -- it's one of the hardest parts of academic work, I think, since it's full of delayed gratification which is disconnected from the struggle.

That's fantastic! I am always so in awe of your research and publishing, especially given all your wonderful work (and long long hours) in teaching.

Hooray! Congrats!

Yes! Totally getting you on how it can be magical and wonderful and yet be all about the moaning and slogging away on it at the time!
