Pens and Pencils

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Pens and Pencils.”


There was a time before keyboards and mice? Wow, who would have thought!! I can type so much faster than I can write, I do not even bother, I even do much shopping lists on my Smart Phone and I cannot remember the last time I left someone a Note! I just send a text message!

My whole life is computerized, from my job (graphic designer / marketing) to my hobbies (Photography and painting). Even when I settle down to read a book it’s on an eReader. it’s possible that I may forget how to write!

In all seriousness though, I do use a computer, tablet, phone for just about everything, I may occasionally jot down a note on paper in a meeting, or doodle on a piece of paper while on the phone, but apart from that……….nothing. I have not kept a written journal or diary for so many years that I can’t remember; everything now a days is here on my blog.

Back in the day, remember always trying to find a pen, a pen that worked, or even something to write on? Pass! I am happy with technology and for the most past, technology seems to be happy with me.

So I don’t need no stinkin’ Pencils!
