Here are some things I often hear from less productive junior faculty.
  • You publish a lot. It's just so easy for you, but it is a struggle for me.
  • I am just not a good scholar.
  • I'll just send it to a lesser journal. Famous Journal will not want me. Peer reviewers are brutal there.
  • I'll just send it out as a book chapter. Famous Journal? You're kidding? I am afraid of peer review.
  • I cannot find the time.

I hear all this so frequently that I want to talk about it and get it out of my system. I hope you will find it at least marginally interesting; there are some parallels to fiction in here.

Ever since [ profile] j_cheney  posted on prognostojection, I spend MUCH MORE time on Duotrope than is healthy for me. I only have four things out, that's nothing. I usually only get worked up when I have six or seven things out, which didn't happen for a very long time. I thought I was over the duotroping habit....
EEP! Help!
