    Don't you love new pens when you write with them?

    Everytime i get new pens i love the clearness of the pen. The dark ink makes the writing smoothing. I wish the pens were always that way... :(

    Ehh, I just stick to my old pen. It is hard to let go of a pen that has been with me for so long. When it runs out of ink, I just replace the ink.

    I don't really think about it. If it's a different brand from the previous one I was using then the shape feels awkward for the first use. I hate throwing out pens and don't do so until it's out of ink. I used to use the pens with changeable cartridges but they always ran dry at the most inconvenient moments.

    Plus, I avoid handwriting as much as possible so pens don't excite me much. I write fast and I'm left-handed so I tend to get covered in ink.

    I don't write I type.

    But I guess so.

    In my entire 21 years of living, I have never once bought a pen. I end up with them somehow. There's always a pen around. Usually use them at work and put them in my notebooks without thinking. So I have never tried a brand new pen.

    Well i use a notebook so in case anything happens to my computer i still have my ideas. But the new pen looks as sleek as a brand new poem.

    I buy recycled-content pens -- good for going green, but not known for spectacular performance.

    Yes, I do love writing with new pens. I rarely do, or rather, I rarely write with nice pens because I like them too much to use. So I just use cheap ones. Unless I'm writing on really nice paper in which case I'll write with a nice pen because obviously paper of such a high quality deserves quality ink. :p

    I love new pens! New pens and notepads. There's something special about opening a brand new note pad and with a new funky pen starting to write. I also use computers for most of my stuff but I always start on paper to scrawl down ideas. Glad to see its not just me!! :D

    That's brilliant :) I'm like that with notepads. I always like to write with good pens (no pen is too good for me to jot down some notes with) but I save notepads for 'best'.... I know, it's wierd but in reality pretty harmless so I forgive myself. lol.

    This is not a writing issue, i.e, a writing problem or approach. Moved to the Lounge
