Mini-Prompt: Concept  
I was reading another blog when I can across the phrase "mere enthusiasm". Here is the quote:

"There's a phrase used in the Aubrey-Maturin novels (and the "Master and Commander
movie) which I think describes a lot of people's attitude: "mere enthusiasm".

Enthusiasm is a bad thing (contrary to modern culture), as it's trivial and
shallow. An enthusiast isn't going to sacrifice themselves for a cause..."

A bit on the judgmental side. We all have our hobbies, no? They were referencing the Green Movement on the political stage. Tons of "enthusiasts." But no one willing to take the leap.

Think of a character who is an example of this concept and write a short paragraph (or a full kiloword) about them in their "mere enthusiasm" mode.
