When was the last time you wrote with your pen?
Today, and for many of us, the pen is losing out, we write, but we write increasingly on the computer.
All of my poems are done in pen, with a notebook. Other pieces are done straight onto the laptop, but poetry still needs the old pen
I still write with a pen once in a while. It's a bad habit that I'm trying to quit, or at least only do when I'm not anywhere near a computer, haha.

I wrote with my pen today briefly. I still use a pen to write things down, so that I can remember them. I use a pen when I do research for a new hub.

It is a lost art.
One, whose resurgence, I would welcome.

When was the last time you wrote an actual letter by hand, without a keyboard?
