      Writing, i hate writing, i hate trying to get words out of my head and on to a computer screen. It’s tough, but I have to do it. I’d much rather spend all day talking.

      Hi Lisa,
      I would say the pressure on all scientists have to publish their work to save their job is the worst thing. Many people publish so much of crap work because of the pressure. I just hate it.
