We’re nearing the point of a final draft.
Yesterday I did some revisions to my sections, integrated sources, and sent the draft back to Tobi. I will have some revision to do to make my sections fit the tone of the journal better and we may include a theoretical framework, depending upon how much framing we do in the other sections.
I’m hoping we’ll have a complete draft to send to the journal in a couple of weeks.
Writing a journal article is stressful! It’s my first one, and it feels more high-stakes than a paper for a class or even my thesis because of the needs of the audience (publication). I put a lot of pressure on myself when I sit down to work on it. I’m looking forward to reaching a stage where we can send it to the journal, even if they ask for a few revisions!
