One down, two to go

Just sent off one set of revisions for a journal article. That leaves just one more revise and resubmit to finish (this week?).

Then there are the pesky two concluding paragraphs that I need to write for that book review essay. Then, I swear, no more book reviews for me. (I've done one for each of the top journals in my field...that's pleeenty.)

No substantive posting until I finish that essay.

I've got your last sentence for you:

"Despite its flaws, this book is an important contribution to the field."

Fill in the rest as needed.

It's 'the rest' that's holding me up. It's actually an essay covering 5 books, so I need the last two paragraphs to say something smart about the group and what they contribute to our understanding of poverty and social policy in Latin America, yadda yadda yadda. grrr.

Will finish after I prep for class though.

why are you pushing yourself so much?

Most of this work is my own fault; I made commitments to write certain things or make certain presentations. Now, they are all coming due at once so it's been a hectic two weeks. Add to that several non-research work meetings on campus and hand-holding of some of my students through their own research projects, and it's kept me pretty busy. I like the work at least.

On the other hand, I would like to have time for other stuff (like a life), too.
