  1. Love this idea, Paddy. Have fun.

    Great idea, Paddy. Not only a clear metaphor (!) but also a valuable visual approach, which many of us (me, especially) need to reinforce that we GET the message.

    Do you need an “after” visual teaching device? If so, as a little P.S. to/for your presentation, I can provide a photo of me, in robe and pjs and typical morning disarray, as a cautionary warning to those who do NOT write enough, who fail to adequately commit to the active writing life. who choose other (less worthy) activities like sitting around sipping coffee and consuming Danish pastries (any nationality of pastry, actually). The resulting overly-cushioned skeleton, pasty skin, and–now, what WAS that 3rd element????–other deficiency (to be identified later) could serve to provide the shocking and painful image of the lazy, slovenly non-writer. (If you can’t entice them positively, try a bit of fear, methinks!)

    Hope your Career Day presentation is a dandy…

    P.S. That missing 3rd element–clothing–is adequately covered in the “robe and pjs” description, I believe!
