As Science Woman has noted, we’re moving into week 3 for InaDWriMo and my progress has been lamentable at best. I found no word count thingies, I am way behind on my gender dissertation paper, and I’m avoiding the resubmit paper. In good news, I’ve asked my graduate student for help on the gender theory…

InaDWriMo Week 2 Update

It’s Saturday again, time for another update of my progress towards this month’s InaDWriMo goals.

InaDWriMo Week 1 Progress

Eek! We’re one week into November already? How in the world did that happen? I’ve made good progress, but I still have *so* much left to do. I’ve already told you how my writing month got off to a start, but below the fold you can catch up on the rest of my progress.

InaDWriMo: Alice’s writing goals

Okay, I’m in. I seriously need to get my writing in gear, and even though I’m still trying to do the tips from AFNFM, I’m finding I need an additional push to actually put fingers to computer and do anything other than email. So here are my InaDWriMo goals:

InaDWriMo Day 1: Not so good

InaDWriMo did not get off to a good start. I had spent 3 hours working on my proposal on Friday afternoon. Before leaving for the weekend, I carefully backed it up into multiple places AND emailed the co-PI with the almost-complete draft. This afternoon, I opened up the file to fill in some of the…

My colleague Donna Riley just sent me a way-cool call for papers: inclusive science, for a special issue of the National Women’s Studies Association Journal. Get your writing hats on — papers are due January 15! The rest of the call is after the fold.

Screwing my courage to the…wait, what?

A few days later, but my story today bears some similarities to Alice’s tale of reviewer requested revisions. I too just got back reviews on a paper derived from my dissertation. The reviews ranged from minor revisions to reject with the editors landing in the middle. Mostly it looks like major rewriting and some rethinking…

Screwing my courage to the sticking post

I got a paper review back yesterday. More revisions. *Sigh.* The history of this paper is: this is part of one chapter of my dissertation. I revised it into a paper last fall. I submitted it the first time in February, and got my first reviews in April. I revised it and resubmitted in June.…

AFNFM: Beginning to write before I’m ready…

I’ve carried on with the activity of actively waiting in accordance with Boice’s Advice for New Faculty Members that I’m blogging about this semester. And I’m preparing for trying Chapter 10: Begin Writing Early. More below the fold…
