Writing academic papers is certainly not the easiest thing in the world and there are never any guarantees that it will be accepted for publication. Having been sworn at by a stranger in the street this morning on the way to get a coffee, it was a very nice surprise to find an email accepting my submission for a conference in Dijon in July. It is terribly satisfying when one’s efforts are rewarded.
Following on from yesterday’s post where I had a written a paper into existence but it still needed editing in order to submit by the end of today. What joy, having being woken early by the police at my door (that’s another, not very interesting story), to check my email and find a message informing me that the paper deadline has been extended by a week. Said paper is sitting there waiting for Monday to be polished ready for shipment, and I enjoyed a leisurely Saturday.
