Looking at my World from a Different Place

This is NOT a Product Endorsement

Through my school years, I had teachers who corrected papers and graded tests with blue pens, green pens, and, most scarily– red pens.   Later on, I worked for various people with specific pen choices:  a man who would only write with purple gel pens and a woman who only wrote with Sharpies.    I also know people who don’t care what they write with– pen, pencil, iron-gall ink, crayons….

I think writers in particular (though not all) are fussy about their writing implements.  Some writers have rituals around their writing practice:  place, artifacts in that place, time of day, special music, a special journal, and, of course, PENS.   I truly think they believe that the creative process only flows if they use that one specific type of implement.

I would not go that far, but I do admit that I have a pen preference.   I don’t believe that the Muse will have a hissy-fit if I don’t use it; my reasons are purely practical.

I use medium felt-tip Papermate Flair pens in black.  My reasons are that I can write while in an inclined position which is how I usually hand-write my journaling and they are so economical that I won’t have a melt-down if I lose one of them.

Hehehe, and I bet you were wondering how this post had anything to do with the Ragtag theme of the day?
