Deadlines

I just found out there is going to be a special issue of a journal that I should really submit an article for. Unfortunately, the deadline is June 1. It would use my data from last summer, but I'm doubtful that I can get a manuscript ready that quickly considering how long the little note has taken me. I guess it's something good to aim for at least. That might get my butt in gear on that #@&#*% data.

I hope you can do it! That'd be great. Good luck!

I say go for it... I sit on manuscript writing/revisions for some long, but sometimes I find that really just getting to an intensive work zone and devoting several days to just focusing on that gets it done--and deadlines are the best way to get into that mode.

Go for it! I think special issues are a major opportunity for young scientists - when someone picks up that issue to look at Dr. Big Name's article, they'll be drawn to yours as well because it's in the same area.
