I finished editing based on my metadata colleague’s comments and suggestions today and actually sent out the article for general editing and review! I am hopeful that folks can read it and get back to me by the end of this week. I will be focusing next on the author guidelines for the journal where I want to submit to make sure I have citations and references formatted correctly and that sort of thing.
I also have to go through the difficult task of trying to read through the article again myself with a “rebooted” mindset so I can forget all of the details and issues I went through and read what is really there. I might try that tomorrow but I also might need to give that a day to let my mind get over some of those mini-dramas.
