Hello, academic friends. Who else has that article, almost finished, like a shameful secret that you don’t know whether to celebrate or to bury, sitting on your hard drive for years now? The longer it takes to get polished, finished, and published, the more it gets covered in plants and barnacles, and looks increasingly worse. You mention it to others with a dismissive shrug as a piece of junk sitting in your life, taking up space, wasting your time.
But maybe, maybe, (your heart whispers), someone will discover it at the bottom of the hard drive ocean one day, clean it off, and say VOILA! the secrets of campus cultural production!
In the meantime, however, here’s another blog post. 😞
