That doesn’t even make sense. Who puts dirty dishes on the back burner? I guess if the sink is full and people leave the dirty pots and pans on the stove, like in the banner image for this blog.

Over the past few months I’ve thought a lot about this project, but written next to nothing. That’s common.

Over the past year I’ve been slowly working on revising a chapter of my dissertation about Brazil’s Zero Hunger Program into an article to submit to a peer-reviewed journal. Last week I finally submitted it.

I just kept feeling like I couldn’t really begin working on Who Does The Dishes until I’d finished the article. But I was sick of the project and was dragging my feet. That’s also common.

I feel like a weight has been lifted. I know at some point the article will be rejected and I’ll have to submit it to another journal, or the journal will require some revisions in order to publish it. But it feels good to be basically done with writing about Brazil and Zero Hunger. I picked the topic 9 years ago, so it’s been a long time; it’s time to work on a project I feel passionate about.
