Day 4 of "20 Days of Chill" writing challenge! The theme for the day is "Pen and paper"
Are pens and paper a thing of the past? I know that everything is moving to digital, but that is something that has been happening most of my life. As I sit at my desk, I still see papers with pen scribbles, (both words and drawings) and think that there is something more to it than just capturing thoughts. There is something tactile about putting a pen to paper that is very nice, especially with the right pen. I have a pen that I love because the ink flows out smoothly and spreads out on the paper if I hold it still. I thought about it recently when I had to use an old ball point pen, the kind where you have to scribble a bit in the corner of the page to get the ink to start, and then it skips, and scratches...ick. I think people who want to only use computers probably own pens like that.
