Article Accepted for Publication!!!

That's right! Finally my article has been accepted for publication and with minimal suggestions for revision. This is my first article! Holy cow. I've been shopping it around for a while now and thought about dumping it altogether many, many times. When I read the laundry list of changes that accompanied the acceptance letter I was a little put off, but once I sat down to make the crazy stylistic changes (like changing "&" to "and" and spelling out abbreviations like etc (why???) and ALL numbers (why??) and writing percent rather than "%," I realized it was actually a breeze and far less of a nuisance than I thought it would be. It took me a little more than an hour to make the stylistic changes. I've already resubmitted the thing. The editor even thinks he'll be able to get it into the next issue. Sweet. I will be published. Wow.

Of course, this also means I have absolutely no excuse for sitting on the other two papers I can send out. That would be something! Three papers in one year... I can only imagine.
