What do I do now?
I just finished my first seminary class and my TA suggested I submit my final paper for publication in one of three journals of Christian education. I trust his judgment—he went through this same program and has a doctorate in education—I’m just frozen by shock. I was just trying to get out of this class alive.
My main concern, as always, is, “What if I suck am not very good at this?” I tend to give up on things when there’s a risk that they won’t work out, so this would normally be a no-brainer: stuff this thing in a drawer, then twenty years from now say, “Oh, I wrote this thing once someone thought I should show to somebody about…blah, blah, blah.”
But if I’m going to finish seminary I’m going to have to push past that. So that leaves me a bit confused, because I don’t know anyone who has had anything published before. Well, there are the professors, but who wants their help?
If anyone has some good advice, let me know.
