Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Another easy debate.

Pens or Pencils?

message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Pencils! Because I can write much better with a pencil. It's so... smooth. You know what I mean?

Jordan (flyinglogicmonkey) | 181 comments Pencil, normally. But I take notes in color-coded pen.

But typing is my preference :)

message 4: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I like typing a bit better too. That gives me a new debate idea.

But I like writing in pen. I have to write in pencil at school, but to me, PENS are a lot smoother than pencils because the lead can't break.

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) And we would like to know why perhaps? :)

message 7: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments umm, I just like them better for some reason. As for typing I like to write it down first and then when I have something type it up and add to it. I like that when it's on the puter it's neater and more people can read it whether by email, internet, or what. I have gotten a whole lot better at typing this year.

Plus, something written by pencil is a lot easier to erase than sth written by pen.

message 11: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments yea

message 12: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) True. Very true, Ginny. I like using pencils sometimes, but they have to be mechanical.

message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

Pencil for tests
Color pens for notes
Typing everywhere in between

message 14: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Haha, that's a good code! :)

message 15: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments nice Elyssa

message 16: by Kate (new)

Kate (katemreads) | 225 comments I love pens. Especially gel pens, they write so smooth. I like pencils to but It has to be a mechanical pencil. I have this wired OCD that I need the point to be sharp all the time. Which is why I prefer pens.

message 17: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) And there is nothing wrong with that. I like pencils too but mine have to be mechanical as well.

message 18: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments Yea I like mechanical but the lead always runs out. That annoys me.

message 19: by Catamorandi (new)

Catamorandi (wwwgoodreadscomprofilerandi) | 29 comments I tend to write in pen. I hardly ever write, though. I just type. I think pen is smoother and neater, until you make a mistake, that is. :)

message 20: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments thats the problem for me.

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

I hate making mistakes in pen. But such is life. Hardly anything is perfect.

message 22: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Very true. Making mistakes in pen can be frustrating sometimes; plus, I run out very easily because I use them so much.

message 23: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments :)

message 24: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) There's nothing happy-making about that Aviva. LOL :)

message 25: by Jordan (new)

Jordan (flyinglogicmonkey) | 181 comments Oh dear. We're converting to pretty-speak. Run awaaaaay!

message 26: by Ayunda (new)

Ayunda (ayundabs) Pencils!
but when i want to make writing with pen i would write with pencil first then trace it with pen. the annoying part is erasing it.

message 27: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments I didnt have anything to say…

message 28: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Aviva: True.

Jordan: I actually wasn't even trying to talk pretty-speak; that's just what popped into my head first. ;)

message 29: by Pandy (new)

Pandy I like pencils better, but I push too hard for mechanical pencils. I can make my letters look nicer in pencil by applying more pressure to certain curves (resulting in thicker, darker lines) and the writing ends up look smoother than it does with pen, but my preference might just be because I'm very picky about my handwriting. I prefer to type whenever I can.

message 30: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I can understand the whole "picky" theme, Pandy. Sometimes I am very picky about my handwriting as well. :)

message 31: by Aviva (new)

Aviva (newtimelord) | 551 comments I hate pencils today because they keep breaking

message 32: by **Carla** (new)

**Carla** I always use pens because they are what is always around but I actually prefer pencil....I liike the way they write better.

message 33: by Ayunda (new)

Ayunda (ayundabs) yeah, my writing sucks when I use most pens..

message 34: by Ameena (new)

Ameena Adel my handwriting is better with a pen
but i prefer pencil when i'm doing tests and exams even though its not allowed
:P stupid rule

but still i use a pen more! and the color of pens are better than pencil

message 35: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I agree with everything you just said. But why don't they let you use pencils on tests and exams? What if someone messes up??

message 36: by Andrez (last edited May 22, 2010 06:46AM) (new)

Andrez (andrez-ssi) we strike it

Queen Susan the Gentle (highqueensusanofcairparavel) I for one prefer to use pencils, that way I can erase something if I mess up.

message 38: by Ameena (new)

Ameena Adel its tough in exams
cause not using pencils really get annoying

message 39: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Wow, well now i'm a little disgusted with pens because of the way yall have to do things. :(

Bookprincess: I understand your part too. Sometimes, I will use a pencil only because I know that I will somehow mess up on something. :)
