Earlier today I lamented that I had nothing good to post about. I came home late after pizza with H, though, checked my email, and learned that my first academic article, â€œWhatever Became of the Paragraph?â€ is getting published early next year in College English. A small impromptu dance resulted. No animals were harmed, although
Revision is needed, but after looking over the comments, which were very positive on the whole, it doesnâ€™t look like Iâ€™ll have to gut it like a fish. That is good. I felt pretty strongly about most of it, and I think the reviewers deftly caught the parts where I was more uncertain or tentative.
I am greatly cheered.
