Can how we write have a direct correlation with what we write with? Think of when you write furiously with a pen, your knuckles dragging across the paper collecting ink stains on your skin. When math problems had to be done in pencils, this allowed the luxury of erasing your mistakes. Or how we haul our laptops to class, forgoing having to decipher our quickly written script in favor of the typed document. Writing instruments may be taken for granted in the classroom but nevertheless play an integral role in our daily activities. Their evolution has allowed us a variety of choices, giving us ease of use, transport, and durability.
