Ornament. So, for example, you might like to write an article about puritanical
insignia in early American literature, or about the physical and psychological
scarring of teenagers in young adult literature. Equally, you could submit a
paper on the translational slippage between scripts (transcript, manuscript,
etc) on the road to publication. Any way you look at it, you are writing about
ornament. And you ornament as you do so. Maybe you could write about that.

Go on then, adorn us.
