I've been trying to finish a paper before classes start. It's about 98% ready (and remember - studies show that 92% of all statistics are made up on the spot). But it still needs one last round of edits before it's ready. It's kind of frustrating - even with the multiple edits it's gone through so far, there are still a lot of silly, stupid mistakes (kind of like my blog posts).
But, since we're sending it to a good journal, that final polishing is what could make the difference - a poorly written paper is always easier to reject. And since it's with a former student, I get to do the final polishing. Oh boy.
At least it's almost done.
