I have known for a while that transitioning to the publishing world from social science writing means that I need a blog. It was just something I was going to do later, until I read this and “later” became “now” which does tend to happen. Eventually.
I was also delighted to learn that it only took about 2 years of transition-like activities, in which I suffered from professional identity disorder (am I a scientist? or a writer?), to turn me into a scientist who writes. Not that 2 years isn’t a long time and not that it was long enough to complete the job, but it seems like an appropriate germination period.
And now, I’m reading, and planning, and, oh yes: writing.
