I was just reading an article about how the invention of the Ball Point Pen changed the world of writing and how a remarkable amount of people are now deciding to go back to Fountain Pens.
For me.. I love the act of writing in whatever form it may take but the invention the the Ball point pen wasn’t a bad one. It gave us the ability to keep our pages cleaner, not to have to worry about spills or smudges and you don’t need to refill them because they are mostly disposable and last a surprisingly long time.
For all the benefits there is still something about using a fountain pen or quill when writing that I absolutely love, especially for cards and letters. I’ve even invested in sealing wax and seals…It’s kind of an obsession.
So Creative Writers..Tell me..How do you like to write?
Computer, typewriter, ball point pen and paper, lined paper, parchment, quills- there are tons of options. Which is your favorite?
