Recording Thoughts (in pencil).


I’ve been reading Recording Thoughts for (literally) years. Like me, Steve thinks of school days when using pencils:

So I’ve been using pencil to keep notes and do my usual project planning for the last day or so. It’s been an interesting change because it brought back a lot of memories from my early school years, starting with the smell of a freshly sharpened pencil. The need to sharpen, thinking to myself “Hmmm…this is getting kinda dull…do I want to get up and sharpen it?” and writing gently with a freshly sharpened point to avoid breaking it all take me back to elementary school. (more)

And there are some other great pencils posts, including a nice review of Palominos and a comparison of pencils. Steve always does a good job of reflection on the purpose of what he writes with, rather than the style/romance. And, also like me, he has an on-again-off-again AG-7.

    Many thanks for the post! And yes, it’s on again, off again with the AG-7. The Caran d’Ache 849 Is tough competition!
