Pens & PencilsPosted: June 16, 2011
Whenever I want to write a letter to someone, or something that I know will last a while, I always grab the same pen. There’s something about how the pen feels in your hand and how the tip feels on the piece of paper. It just seems like your print is always better with that certain pen as well. That probably has something to do with the confidence you feel when using it. Generally, we just grab the pen that’s most convenient and jot something done. When we grab our favorite pen, we want to use it and are excited to use it. When you do something you enjoy you relax and focus a bit more — using your favorite pen is no different.
The same can be said about pencils – mechanical pencils vs. your traditional pencils. Most people have a preference for one or the other. I definitely prefer a mechanical pencil when given the choice. There is always a sharp side of the lead that I can use. I constantly rotate the pencil in my hand to make sure I am writing with that edge. I am not sure what it is, but I feel like my handwriting is dramatically better with a mechanical pencil as opposed to the traditional one.
