I just sent off a piece of writing that has been through 5 sets of revisions with 4 different people, at two different publications.

I think if it doesn't get accepted now I'm just gonna put it on my website and move on.

@edsu And you're a good writer to begin with. That must be frustrating.

@dbs thanks Dan -- it is frustrating. Some of the reviews were quite insightful, but they definitely transformed the article from how the article was initially conceived. The paper could be better, but it also could just be different--which on the face of it doesn't seem to have been worth it.

To make matters worse I just learned that even if it is accepted it probably won't be published till next Spring.
