OK, folks, I know you will laugh but I just had an article accepted for publication in a very good journal. A very good journal. It’s my third accepted article in two months. I’m on a roll here.
When I got the acceptance email, I thought I wasn’t reading it right because I never thought this journal would accept me. I’d had a glass of wine just before, so I suspected that maybe I was imagining it. So I called N. and had him read the email. And he confirmed that it was an acceptance.
“I just realized,” I told him, “that you are married to a brilliant woman.”
“I’ve always known that,” he responded.
“Well, I haven’t,” I said.
It is very good to know that I’m not an intellectual failure.
I’m too emotional now to say anything intelligent but in my next post I will share what I did to turn myself from a slacker into a publishing machine. 🙂
I feel very very happy.
