Abbruzzese laughs when thinking about her own revisits of previous writing. When advising Nagi, she notes, “It’s tough to look back at your own work, right? You have to come back to this essay, but without losing yourself in the process. This is a commendable piece of work, and we just need to bring it to the level of a scholarly manuscript.”
The process of revising an article provides an opportunity for established scholars to share their own experiences with academic writing. “I shared two of my papers because I was telling her it’s common to get rejected,” says Abbruzzese.
