Over the years I have tried many different writing instruments. From the simplest ballpoint pens, to good, old-fashioned number-two pencils, to fancy fountain pens: I think I have truly tried them all, or as many as I could get my hands on! And they all have their important place in the world of writing. I find that my preference of writing instruments shifts over time. Sometimes that is because I come across something new and better, or because I find that I myself am changing - holding my pen differently, or sitting differently as I write. All these little things do make a difference.
But I am pretty delighted with my current pen-friends. I have been using these two options for at least the last six months, since I found my journal-match. Remember, it is not just about the pen itself, but the way it connects with your paper! When I have gone through periods of using cheap spiral notebooks, sometimes a ballpoint has been my best pen-friend. All that matters is that it feels right to you!
My main, go-to pen right now is the "Uni-Ball Vision Needle" rollerball pen. I use black pens exclusively (just a preference) and I prefer the "Micro" version, even though this photo is of the "Fine"! I have found both the "Fine" and "Micro" versions of this pen to suit my writing well. I usually just pick up whichever is available when I am shopping. (Learn more about these pens here!)
Pens are little things that make a BIG difference as I write. Is this true for you, too? Which favorites have you found for yourself? I am always excited to try a new option... let me know!
