Kelly and Eric have both said their good-byes, and after spending a couple of months here, it is my time to wander on, as well. I've thoroughly enjoyed being here, and am grateful to Dan and the Lounge for the invitation. I started out back in August hesitantly replying to some questions posed to me as a current faculty candidate going through the AALS process. I haven't talked too much more about that process, and that won't change tonight, but I hope that once things are done, Dan and the rest of the Loungers (should that be capitalized?) will have me back for a follow-up post or two on the process and how it turned out.
In the meantime, I'll be joining the folks over at Madisonian.net to do my IP/IT/Information Law thing, but will also be here lurking and occasionally commenting.photographs -- not that I have time to do that right now, but still). For my last foray here, I want to start with this:
In the city fields
strangers are like friends
And with that, I would like to ask: are there people in your schools who are creative outside of the law, but still with the written word? Are they novelists [book link]? Playwrites? Fiction writers (example [pdf])? Are they tenured? How do your colleagues view their non-law activities?
Thanks again to Dan and the gang for inviting me here and for being so welcoming during my visit.
