MY MAGIC WAND

I love writing with a pencil!  I use an old-fashioned wooden pencil.  It’s the same type I used when I was a kid.  In this age of computers and electronic gadgets, there is something magic about a wooden pencil.  I think of it as my magic wand.

Every so often I have to stop to sharpen my pencil.  This gives me a wee break, from writing, and I marvel at the picture that pencil shavings make.

When I finish a draft in pencil, I may do second and third drafts depending upon what my inner editor says.  Most times I just do one draft, and revise when processing the words on a computer.

I also use my pencil to draw and doodle to warm up before writing, or simply to have fun.

When I pick up a pencil, my magic wand, I become a child.  I am playful, spontaneous and full of wonder.
