I keep telling people this is a big issue, but sometimes I feel like no one is listening. (Except the reporters who’re obviously reading my brainwaves, or something.)
The solution is to just finish the preliminary research I’ve done, and write the damned paper, and figure out who to send it to for publication. And really, I’m sort of in a great place for help with that, so maybe I really should get off my ass and do it.
For some reason, though, it’s sort of intimidating to take on a large project on my own and just because. I realize that makes little sense; I think part of it is because I now have to create the constraints, instead of having them handed to me.
