Okay, it's actually pretty trivial to readers, I guess. But I'm dorkily excited: I've finally settled upon a proper blogging term for my professional discipline. Clearly, if I am to maintain my oh-so-thin veneer of anonymity/pseudonymity on here, I can't say what I actually do. I've attempted to speak about it in terms of Harry Potter's curriculum; I've tried dancing around it in English studies lingo; I've even stolen a page out of another academic blogger's playbook with a borrowed term. No more, brothers and sisters, no more! I finally hit upon the ideal term for what I do, as befits a blog-reading public:
I am pleased. And probably should go back to fretting about my book manuscript now.
