Blogging the Writing of the Peer-Reviewed Paper, Part 5

Because I have been contacted by various and sundry nefarious term paper mills, who are (if they are to be believed, and who knows?) chomping at the bit for me to post my drafts, I have decided against posting them.

Perhaps I was naive about the amount of evil out there, lurking to shake money out of misguided college students who think they can cheat their way to a dream career. Honesty is the best policy! If you don't develop your voice, and if you allow your lack of confidence in yourself tempt you to cheat, you steal the future from yourself.

At any rate, my paper has been sent to The American Archivist for peer review. I will continue to blog my experiences with this process if the editor gives me permission to do so.
