Good news! My paper has been accepted for publication. There are some minor things that need to happen, like cutting out 3,000 words (no, the paper is not 2,800 words long!), and re-working the end notes. I’ve discovered that they did not export cleanly from Open Office to Word. Although all the work I put into correcting them is not lost, I still face another mind grind converting the end notes. I will tackle that challenge first so that I can keep looking forward to the creative aspect of paring down and fine tuning the manuscript to fit within the length constraints.
