So the normal service thing was a bit of a grand claim, but I am back (although I can never tell for how long).
The conference last week was really good. Kind of daunting at times as it was the first ‘big’ conference I’ve been too. By which I mean it wasn’t a postgrad gig, nope, this one had lots of big-wigs. I got introduced as a token postgrad, a couple of the others speakers did too, which did nothing to help my nerves. As it happened, I’m glad I decided to draft an article-like presentation and read that, rather than just ad-lib as I usually do. No one ad-libbed, making that idea a sensible one.
But the paper seems to go down well, and the feedback was positive so I think there is hope for this one getting published once its revised into a proper article.
This is the other big thing, the corrections have all been approved – just need to sort out the grammar and then that is done and can be printed and submitted.
It is going to be strange not having it around any more.
