    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 smile

    Great question.

    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 interview families who want to adopt children.  I still take notes the old fashioned way- with a pen and notepad.  Clients often ask why I don't use a laptop.  I'm just old school I guess!

    I write all my article notes using pen and paper. I do have an iPad app I use occasionally, but still like writing out my notes. Much less chance of accidentally copying and pasting...

    All the time.  I have a pen given to me as a gift many years ago.  I love that pen and use it all the time for everything.

    about 5 minutes ago  I always write letters and cards to friends and family by hand, and I always hand write notes for articles and stories.

    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.

    Each day..............I just like the 'act' of handwriting.   Every article that I submit, here or elsewhere, was first drafted, and proofed, in pen.

    It is a lost art.

    One, whose resurgence, I would welcome.
