Try, Try Again

The old adage goes "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." I have made yet another attempt for submitting my own sole authored journal publication. I tried this last year, only to have been rejected from a different journal. It has taken me this long to distance myself enough from my own writings to be able to realize, with the help and revised framework from my adviser, that I need to try again even though I was rejected. I actually feel that the conceptualization of the paper is much better- I was never fully satisfied with it, but now, I feel that it "fits". After following all of the crazy submission guidelines (with the specific details for bibliography, references, quotations, etc), I just sent off my article for consideration with another journal. Hopefully, I will have better success. If not, I will just try another journal because I truly feel that there is a point to be told from this research. Yikes! Now the 3 month waiting period . . . .

Cheryl,

Hi this is claudia, your old friend from Belmont. I found your blog through Adam and Lianne's blog. I see that you are married now, congratulations. I remember your husband when I ran into you at Cafe Rio in Cottonwood Heights. I guess you guys were dating at that time. I am living in Henderson, NV with my husband who is now attending medical school. So it seems that you are finishing with your PhD; you never stop to amaze me. Let's keep in contact. Click on my name so can see my blog. Espero que sigas practicando Espanol. Te mando un gran abrazo.

Good for you, Cher! Persistence is sure to pay off sometime soon, especially for a person as capable as you are.
