Yay!!! My Sex and the City article has been accepted for the journal (Feminism and Media Studies)
Booooo!!! I have to do some revisions!
One reviewer absolutely loved it, said I was very original, clearly interpreted the theory, and was writing about something very significant.
The other reviewer didn’t like it, said I didn’t seem to know what I was talking about, and the significance was unclear and they would recommend to reject it.
THAT IS BAD!!!!!!!!
Personally, I thought reviewer number 1 was exceedingly kind, and reviewer number 2 was exceedingly harsh - somewhere in between was what I was expecting. Because the article is a little different in content to my usual topics I figured I might need some direction, so I am not surprised to see comments about framing it up slightly differently for the readership of the audience, but I was surprised to read the one about not being clear about the theory. *sniffle* I was a little upset about that. But then I read the first review again and felt better. Now I have the very difficult job of revising it . My instructions were to take into account all the suggestions from reviewer 1 (extending one part, speaking less about another part, fixing technical errors, rewriting paragraphs x and y), and it was up to me what to consider from reviewer 2.
So, mixed reviews, some more work ahead but… it has been accepted, so:
THAT IS GOOD!!!!
