    Pen because I am a heavy writer and constantly have to sharpen my pencil. But on the other hand I have to use a pencil because of the amount of work I do in maths and physics it is very easy to make a mistake and it looks a mess to constantly put lines through the work. So I use a pencil but would prefer to use pen.

    Tippex ain't that expensive. They're like 50p a bottle if you buy cheap ones, plus they work even if they're cheap. You could probably buy 10 bottles of them instead of a pack of frixion pens.

    For writing I prefer using a pen, I have moved on to ball point pens from the classic fountain pen which used to always use. I very rarely use pencils any more apart from for diy purposes

    There's nothing like a new pen and new pad of paper it's so beautiful and you always try and write really neat and carefully which lasts for about half a page.

    I prefer to use scissors. Have you tried to use scissors to write? They're pretty effective. At making confetti anyways.

    I like pens better because they are smoother to write with and they don't go blunt

    Which do you prefer ?
    Pens were invented before pencils, which were invented before erasers. But now we have erasable pens, so there's no point in pencils anymore.

    Pens

    They're just that much easier to remove from the anal tract after a quiet night in
