National Stationery Week #writingisforever

It’s a shame that we tend to write less now with emails,
facebook messages and tweets paving the way we correspond with each other. But with a special pen you feel you want to
get your feelings straight onto paper. 
Why not leave little notes around the house for everyone so they know
how much they are loved! Writing by
hand shows so more effort and requires much more care than typing on a
laptop. You give the recipient
something tangible to keep, a cherished memory to stash away somewhere
safe. Just imagine if the tooth fairy
resorted to emails! Lots of the magic
would be lost.

I really love getting mail
through the door. Usually its boring
bills or unsolicited junk, so to have a letter or a card really brings a shine
to my day. It’s a thoughtful gesture;
the letters I received from friends and loved ones when I did Camp America aged
18 helped keep my homesickness at bay! 
They made me giggle, they kept me up to date with gossip and it made all
the difference to me settling into life at camp knowing everyone was thinking
about me.

My Sheaffer Sagaris Roller Ball Metallic Blue pen came
in a lovely presentation case, it’s a nice looking pen to have sat on my
desk! I do not think you feel like a
proper writer unless you have a decent pen to hand. This particular one helps you write with ease, the ink is very
fluid.

I prefer writing reviews by
hand; I usually end up with little arrows everywhere as I change my mind about
how I want the paragraphs to flow. On a
laptop it would just be a cut and paste job, you would not see the thought
processes in place! It tells you a lot
about a person when you see their written work, whereas on a laptop things are
more uniform and regimented.
