Or does someone actually think my work is worth publishing?
I am writing as Editor of Journal to invite you to submit the interesting paper you recently presented at the ASA Meeting in Boston. “Your Work” is a provocative analysis and one I would like an opportunity to review.
If you decide to submit your paper for review and possible publication in Journal, please send an e-copy and 2 hard copies to
City, State, Zip +4
A $10.00 processing fee should accompany the hard copies. Please note, this fee is waived for graduate students.
It’s weird because I’m devoting the two weeks until the semester starts in getting said paper publication ready by addressing some of the issues raised at ASA and cleaning up the writing since I had several epiphanies after reading The Elements of Style. So if this is for real, and not a form, it gives me more motivation to really attack this thing and see if I can get it published in a known journal. Not that I wouldn’t keep going anyway, cause like I said it was my plan, but it removes maybe 5% of the self-doubt I have that no really cares about my idea.
