I'm looking for a place with interesting, engaging students. A place with an active, energetic faculty. A place where the teaching load is light enough that I still have time to write, but where I can also develop and fine-tune the classes I'd love to teach. I'm also feeling unformed enough as a teacher that I think I could be happy teaching a lot of different types of classes, from small group sessions to large lectures, from intimate courses on a few authors in a sub-field like South Asian Diaspora Lit., to a large survey of American lit. They're all appealing, in their own way.
Ah well. I suppose at this point, we just wait and see whether I get any offers. If I get multiple offers, then I can fret about which would be the best fit and make me happiest.
Finished reviewing the Gustavus info; another hour or so to go. So I suppose I will go back to writing. Only a thousand words of chapter 18 so far today; four thousand to go. And we're going to try to squeeze in a quick visit to Kate and Becca and Gavin and the new baby this afternoon, so that may interfere a bit with writing, but in the very best of ways. :-)
Total word count: 91,900. Starting to feel like a real book, though I think there's a lot to add in the next draft. Bodies in Motion was only 89,100, even with the acknowledgements and everything. That's a bit startling.
