Science Writing and Rejection

Last week, I prepared my first manuscript for publication.  It was the first thing I've tried to publish based on my research.  We submitted it to Nature Medicine.  We got a response this week that the Editorial Board was rejecting it and was not sending it to the Review Board.  I know they reject a lot of papers and it's not personal, but I'm still a bit disappointed.  Round 2 will probably be the Journal of Clinical Investigation.  Hopefully that goes better!

Maryland Sheep and Wool 2010

Over the weekend, I went to my first ever fiber festival - Maryland Sheep and Wool!  It was very interesting!  Kind of like a State Fair, but focusing only on fiber-related animals and products.  I really enjoyed it.  I only bought two skeins of yarn and some buttons (pics to come later) and managed to stay in my budget.  I camped on Patapsco Valley State Park, which was wonderful.  Here are some pictures from the weekend:
