Well. When it rains, it pours.
I just got home from dental appointment and jacket-buying - the latter in preparation for my campus interview.
And I found, in my email inbox, a letter letting me know that Big-ass Journal has accepted the article I submitted in the summer! Just when I was starting to worry and wonder about it. What's more, the editor says they'd like to send it to press ASAP, since it fits well with some other articles that are going to press. What, no changes?!
I am so pleased. I really love this paper - it began as a paper for a PhD seminar five years ago, and I always held onto it as the only work of my own that I was really satisfied with. So I expanded it in June and put it out there. And now, look!!
