Death of the Pen or Not

Many of you know that I am totally against e-books and kindles and the like.

Let me rephrase that.  I am totally against them for myself.  I like to hold a book in my hands.  I like to turn the pages.  I like to inhale the subtle fragrance of print and paper.


Even the thought of a book relaxes me.

As our world becomes more technologically dependent, because that is what is happening, I want you to know that I also do not believe that the pen–the simple pen–will  be extinct.

I think there will always be a need for a pen:  whether it’s jotting something  in a meeting or sketching the shape of a tree or scribbling an address down so that you can later put it into your GPS.  I believe the pen will be around for a long time.

I’m not the only one.  Visual Artists are still using primitive means to create.  Art needs any and all tools to be created: old or new. 

The need for pens/writing utensils goes beyond the world of visual arts, though.  The business world still needs them.  Have you seen a copy center void of pens?  Have you been to a conference where you didn’t need a pen?

No, I didn’t think so. 

Most of my pens around my home are free pens that have been used as promo pens.  Everyone has the need for a pen. 

All this to say, if you need to market your business, promo pens are a cheap way to go.  I don’t know how many of you need to do this, but if you do, now you’ve got my two cents!
