Superficial No More

Remember the article about Castellanos Moya that was rejected for being superficial? I was given 10 days to rewrite it completely and re-submit. And I did. Almost killed myself because it’s a crazy amount of work.

I didn’t have to do it. I could have taken my time and submitted someplace else. But I wanted a challenge. I wanted to know if I still had it. (It’s a midlife crisis thing).

The article was accepted today with minor revisions. I got the highest possible ranking in originality this time but a middling score in the writing style. I’ve been writing in English so long that I can’t nail the Spanish stylistics well enough to fool people.
