It is a new decade, but I can’t predict that far ahead. So here are some writing goals for 2020.
I want to finish three publishable pieces. Whether or not they’ll get in is an entirely different (and much longer!) process I am only partially in control of. But I want to build on “The Altruistic Shield” and use it to inform my theoretical and conceptual evolution.
By 2021, I’ll be working on dissertation research and will take a break from attempts at original theorizing to get my empirical data. Thus, this year, I’m going to try to get three related but different pieces complete.
I also want to find an avenue in which to follow up on “the Altruistic Shield,” because that original piece is… short. It’s two pages. And I have more to say. Maybe that will be part of my three pieces, but maybe it’s something else, something I advance through my podcast or conference type settings.
I’m working on the first of these three pieces right now, and also trying to send the Shield article around to get it attention.
I’ll keep writing here as my theories develop, and in any place my thoughts can be successfully advanced.
