Personally, I prefer pen for writing and pencil for doodling. It is usually a pen in my hand, so if I think of something to draw so I remember a key point, I will also use pen for that. I can recall back in high school, my binders were full of doodling in pen, both inside and out. I suppose it is because a pen never needs sharpening, and the results last longer.
