So I’ve just submitted my paper – the culmination of 4 years of hard scientific work – to a very good journal.

It’s Thursday afternoon, nearly Friday. I feel like I’ve been run over by a tank. And I find myself thinking, I don’t care if it gets sent out for review and ultimately gets rejected:  I’m just happy that don’t have to think about it for a while.

So go ahead, referees: take as long as you like.
