Pencil or Pen?

I like pens.  Especially blue pens. They write a crisp, clean line, all blue and cheery.

Pencils are gray and smudgy.  The tips get dull quickly.  They don't look as nice,

I want to write my life in ink.

But I can't.  Everything changes.

Maybe that's why I like pencils -- mechanical ones. They're always sharp. Too bad I'm not ;oD!

That's true, and many things aren't crisp and clear, more like smudgy and blunt=tipped...
But we write anyway!!

Perhaps we can all compromise and "write our lives" with mechanical pencil- less messy but still changeable!

Blue ink is also my favorite. I like a medium point too. :)

Are you going to erase part of your life, Julie?
Sometimes we have to write all grey and smudgy so that we can see that we are going wrong, rub it out and start again. When it comes to the final draft, maybe we can do THAT in pen?
Just think ~ no pencils or erasers in heaven!

You guys are wise AND clever!

It's my plans that I want to put in nice, tidy blue ink, but pencil is probably much safer!
