I’ve been dragging my heals all week about doing the rewrite of the literature review from our conference paper. (As it came together I realized that we were talking too much about something that didn’t make sense and not enough about something else that was important.) I’ve been DREADING it, doing anything (exercising even) to get out of it.
Of course, it took me all of 45 minutes. It proved much easier to do once I sat down and started.
We still have other things to do with this paper (add interactions, perhaps a school-level fixed effect, and then decide on a home and tailor the conclusion to that journal). I REALLY want it done. This is our last joint paper for publication, after which I can focus pretty solely on my OWN stuff.
