Writing utensils and why each hold a special place

I will discuss 5 writing utensils: pens, pencils, crayons, magic markers and chalk. I will tell what I like about them.


Pens are often what contract deals are signed it. People use them also when they must fill out important documents as it is not allowed to be in lead but ink instead. Black and blue are the most common ink colors but it comes in more colors.

Pencils are often what tests are taken in and mandatory for almost all school tests as you can use erasers for them while erasers for pens are harder to erase. Pencils are easily to break and it needs sharpening quite often.

Crayons are used in coloring books where detailed pictures have animals, buildings and other colors because it is easier to use different colored crayons to meet what is needed to feel in the picture. It is often used by younger people and easy to break. They come with paper over them usually and can be toxic or non toxic.

Magic Markers

Magic Markers are used on white boards as there needs to be quick erasing after making certain points and it is easy to smear the ink if careless. It is great to use and black is most common but comes in blue and red also and other colors. After about 30 minutes, something new usually gets added.

Chalk is used on chalkboards and it is usually black or green board and chalk is usually white but can be pink or other colors. The board is easy to break a nail on if not careful and a lot of things are usually needed to put on the chalkboard for copying purposes and then erased to add more.

    Pencils (or lead holders - really graphite) were also used in drafting during the dark ages (Wayyyyyy before I was born, in the days of my father, grandfather, and uncles) before AutoCAD.

    It looks strange to me to see a 'conclusion' - where there had not been an 'issue'.
    I have ONE suggestion to add: to ignore the 'traditional' functions and to purposely -emm- mis-use those devices... may contribute to get this world out of its present stagnation?
    Comment: your listing is somewhat incomplete (... ink pens, brushes, spray cans, the twigs on the beach, ...)

    Very nice! If "writing utensils" have feelings, they'd give you a Noble Prize for your composition to give them recognition.
