I don’t know about you, but I love sharp pencils. There is something so satisfying about sharpening the end of a pencil, then dragging its point across a clean sheet of paper.
It’s like starting anew.
It is very inspiring to write with a fresh pencil, as strange as it sounds.
What inspires you to write? Events that can only be remembered through written words? People whose lives and words must be retold through writing? Feelings that can only be expressed through prose?
Sharpen your pencil. Find a new pen. Write.
