I kept hearing about rejections for book chapters and when I saw a request for proposals that worked with my research I decided to try my luck. At the very least I would get a few rejections before completing my thesis BUT… I was accepted. This is really great news. The problem is that apart from my regular schedule for my thesis I have to prepare for the conference in Denver, Perth and Sydney University which happen one after the other. Now I have to add a book chapter into the mix. It needs to be submitted before I leave for Denver because there will be no time while I am on the road. So that gives me 4 weeks to get it done! I’ll need some serious time management here.
