my paper’s in the third AoIR annual!
I love it when I forget that I submitted something and then I get a letter of acceptance!
My paper on distributed narrative, the revised, 10 page version of what I presented at AoIR in September, has been accepted for publication in the Association of Internet Researchers Annual! That’s a real book with just a selection of the papers that were presented at the conference. The second annual’s not out yet, but this is what the first annual looks like. My paper will be in the third annual.
I have to make some small changes. Make the intro less abrupt, make some colloquialisms easier for non-natives to understand, I forgot to put Gibson in the bibliography, that sort of thing, nothing big. I’m so glad I forced myself to rewrite the paper and send it in, even though I assumed it wouldn’t be accepted.
Ooh, this makes me all eager to do more work on distributed narratives! There’s been no research in my life this month. All my time has been spent on teaching, coordinating, organising and you know, stuff that has to be done and is quite interesting in its own ways, but leaves no space over for reading, thinking and writing.
