Marcia,
Are you familiar with the Odyssey of the Mind program? A significant part
of the problem-solving process deals with style and the examples they use
in the manuals are quite good. Perhaps someone in your circle has a
coach's manual and I know you could search for their website. Good luck!

> Here are the instructions for storing paper pulp cut & pasted from

>
> Twinrocker is the primary source for hand papermaking materials in the
U.S.

>
> STORING PULP:
> KEEP COOL:
> If you cannot use your pulp at one time, it is possible to store it for a
> while. An unopened pail of cotton linters pulp will last up to several
> months, if kept cool.
> KEEP CLOSED:
> Opened pails won't last as long, due to molds & spores from the
atmosphere.
> KEEP CLEAN:
> While you are using it, make sure your hands and your tools are clean.
> Reseal the lid as soon as possible.
> ADD BLEACH:
> If you must store your opened pulp for a long time, add a capful of
chlorine
> bleach to a gallon or two of water. Add to the pulp and stir thoroughly.
Let
> it sit for awhile, then rinse it thoroughly in clean water. Any
un-rinsed,
> residual chlorine bleach can attack the fiber, however. If you are truly
> concerned about the archival qualities of your paper, don't use bleach,
> order the amount of pulp you need when you need it.
> ABACA WON'T LAST:
> Cotton pulps are the only ones that will last for more than a week or
two.
> Fibers such as flax, abaca, hemp, etc. just won't last...use immediately!
> FREEZING:
> You can freeze pulp. After defrosting you must use a mechanical stirring
> device such as a paint stirrer chucked into an electric drill to get the
> lumps out.
