The pencil

Emmett's picture

I've never been able to talk about this with anyone before, mostly because I'm sure nobody would appreciate it as much as I do.
Do you ever just watch yourself write (assuming you're writing with a pencil) and watch how the graphite lays itself exactly where you put it and are just amazed by its beauty? Its like there's nothing and then, all of a sudden, there are words. I suppose this idea could be translated over to pen usage but I don't like pens so I wouldn't have the same awe over writing with pen.

Next time you're writing with a pencil, for me, just notice the lines that your pencil makes.

i do that when i'm writing

i do that when i'm writing in-class essays. it's rather distracting, but also pretty amazing. but then i start thinking existential thoughts about what it means to appear and exist at all, which scares me, so i try not to.

Have you guys read The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series? This thread reminds me of the part about the man who rules the universe. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend you do. I laugh my ass off every time.
