English is not Pascal's first language, but he still decided to do his presentation in English, which made for some good times! Is it possible that speeches are always better when done in a language unmastered by the speaker? All signs point to yes.
The presentation outlined Pascal's process in writing Nicolas, which seemed for him to just tumble out on to the page. He wrote it fast! Like, in a couple days. And he believes you can too!
That quick and easy honesty is very effective in Pascal's work and it's not as easy to acheive as it sounds. Let's hope Pascal's next offerings come just as easily.
In case you haven't read it yet, come by 211 and pick up a copy of Nicolas. You'll be happy you did.
