In my last post — an account of my day yesterday — I noted that I’d stayed up until the wee hours of the morn working on revisions for an article. I sent it back to the editor at something like 1:30 in the morning, and a little over 24 hours later it has been accepted.
The journal it will be published in is Mythlore, one of the most prominent journals that publishes academic work on J.R.R. Tolkien. It will actually be my third article to appear in its pages, and I’m quite proud to have hit the trifecta. I’m probably more proud, though, that one of my former students will also be published in the same issue, which is also a bit of a trifecta: this will be the third article to appear in Mythlore that began as a research paper under my tutelage.
