Pens and Pencils

When was the last time you wrote something substantive — a letter, a story, a journal entry, etc. — by hand? Could you ever imagine returning to a pre-keyboard era?

Shopping lists. Not that I write them but I am given lists of things to get. I cannot imagine any other way than scribbling down to remember what to shop at my local supermarket. If I have a shopping list I am not one to deviate.

Book reviews. Notes taken as I read each book which become reviews which you can read as part of the widget: Goodreads.

And cards. For christmas or birthdays or thank yous. Standard fare but unimaginable any other way than providing a personal greeting and signing off.

Oh yes signatures too, like on art works. Just a signature, but enough to claim originality. For example on credit card receipts.

p.s. That is as substantive as I get with a pen.
