Pencils are the best. They are simple, and they erase. Pens are over rated. ;-D

Technically keyboard, but since that's not an option I elect to choose pen. Simple reason, I'm left handed. Try writing a page or more non-stop with a pencil when you're left handed, and the side of your palm is going to get all silvery, while the lead smudges on the paper nonetheless. No thanks to that.

I'd take a mechanical pencil over a regular pencil any day of the week if I had to choose between just those two.

Pencil is better for artwork (shading, etc) but I stink at art. :-b


Holy cow, and I thought I was the only one! I'm very particular about the type of pens I use, everything from body style to writeability. I'm OCD about my pens and I don't like anyone using my pens.....it's bizarre I know....


Nah, not bizarre at all. At least I don't think so. :-D ;-D

nope, i'm the same way... I bought a $14 pen and a $10 pen just yesterday and think it is well worth it... there are days I would rather have a good pen than anything

Pens for writing. If drawing, outlining, tracing, etc. I prefer a pencil.

Mechanical pencils rule. They don't need to be sharpened, and they are always sharp and neat. ;-D

Definitley pens, mainly because im a lefty and when i use pencils the lead smears onto my hand as it moves across the paper. Im pretty picky about my pens too, i only like the cheap BIC pens, in fact i need to buy more soon.
