Pencil vs. Pen

Pen wins.  No question.

I’d heard it before and never paid much attention: pencils write slower.

Last night (or early this morning, rather), as I was racing to capture images before they left my dream-memory I was repeatedly frustrated in my attempt to speed up by the simple… physics (I guess you’d call it) of scraping particles onto paper, rather than rolling ink.

My hand is already too slow to keep up with my brain.  I need a pen.

  1. Pen. All the way.

    Unless you only have one sheet of paper and have to write on a hard surface. Then pencil. I have this thing with pens. There has to be padding or it bugs me, for some reason.
