Never touch a writer’s pen…

24 Apr

I do not know if it is just me, or if it is a writer thing, but I really love pens. 

And journals. 

And notepads.

And paper.


Yeah…. so stationery is my friend.  What can I say?


So it was a really great Birthday present my wife gave me this year: A custom made pen made from Wild Olive Wood and 12C gold. 

I know for most people this is probably really boring; a pen.  But I really love me a pen I do.  And the fact that this is one-of-a-kind custom-made item is really cool. 


Yeah, I am easily amused. 

And the fact that it is engraved, means I can find it easily….7c016dfbea34d9853d3493f94f4ecb1f

And while some writers get excited over a particular pen or word processing programme, words remain the most important tool the writer has to work with.
