I have a post on publishing and fear up at PhD2Published. It starts like this:
The biggest barrier to publishing is fear.
- Fear of rejection.
- Fear of criticism.
- Fear that you really don’t have anything to contribute.
And then I talk about how to move forward anyway under the following headings
- Look for the contribution to knowledge
- Where is the debate happening
- Outwitting the gremlins
- When you get it back
- Keep the stream flowing
Go read Fear is in the eye of the beholder and maybe poke around the PhD2Published site for other helpful information.
