“The very first article I ever submitted to a peer review journal, the editor sent the article to only one peer reviewer and he sent me the remarks directly, and they were mean. I had a typo and he pounced on little things. You always think of the negative stuff, and that is what you always focus on. I can proudly say that I got rid of that email.”
