I just attended the ever-phenomenal Writers’ Institute in Madison, Wisconsin. When not hosting a session, I made a point of meeting people. A diverse group, I’m confident that every literary genre was represented at this heavily-attended event.
One of the things that all of the attendees had in common is their interest in writing. Another similarity is their love of writing implements! I saw pens from:
- disposable to incredibly expensive
- ballpoint to roller ball, gel, and fountain
- retractable to cap-top
I saw two left-handed pens (not kidding), and one pen that wrote with an antiqued brown (think sepia tone) ink. Amazingly, one author/speaker, Bradley Beaulieu, did his book signing in calligraphy!
My favorite is the Jetstream pen made by uni-ball. Simple, I like its retractable style and the quick-drying ink leaves a smooth writing line. I’d go to the mat for my pen!
Do you have a favorite pen?
