Just a piece of happy personal news for those among you who don’t talk to me much:
I signed my first publishing contract yesterday!
The piece, which I wrote last week, will be out next week (how’s that for turnaround?). I’d give more details, but I remain hesitant to attach my name to my blog from this end. [Update: it’s here.]
I’d also add, because I am a nerd about such things, that it seemed like quite a nice contract for an academic journal: I get to keep my copyright, and can republish wherever I want, so long as I note where the piece was first published.
