peer review anxiety 

reviews are in for my first peer-reviewed article. both reviewers recommend it for publication, ‘with important considerations for revision’. I deal poorly with criticism, even gentle and justified; by far the scariest part of academia for me. Reviewers are not anonymous, and one of them is famous in my area. I used to walk around with & blog about his textbook.

was planning to take my time with this but now I realise ppl will want to know what they said next meeting, Tue 😔

peer review anxiety 

@melissaboiko I understand. I see and think of only the negative on first read and ruminate on something with even mild criticism.

If this helps, setting it aside until the next day usually helps me read it with more balance (I realize you only have two days).
