thread of revelation: This is how I write

justanothermemphisgirl:

I do not use pens
Pens are for those who
Assume they will not
Be making mistakes
I always use a pencil
No. 2, razor sharp
Not the soft lead
I like it hard
The pencil lies gently
Between my right thumb
And my first two fingers
They do not overlap
I learned to loosen my grip
Because the lead is…

I still write with pencils too. Unpainted, natural wood pencils are my favorite…it’s the texture of them, a different kind of smooth than painted ones, and also, I don’t eat paint when I clamp ‘em between my teeth. Though I’m not particular and also write with ink and markers and crayons and about anything that’ll make a mark when necessary.
