Sending off the paper, finally, with all the angst of ‘it’s probably still garbage’ and ‘I could do more work on it’, is a liberating feeling. That’s it, nothing more can be done. If it’s rubbish, so be it; if it needs works, the reviewers will tell you; but for the moment there is nothing else to be done. A blessed (if temporary) relief!
