If he created computers (or whatever he created), he wont need a pen.

I use blue biro/gel pen. I don't like using black pens and I don't use fountain pens either, cos I'm left-handed and it'd smudge (unless I wrote awkwardly).

I'm left handed and use a fountain pen, i write quite strange now, but very rarely smudge the ink. I used to use rollerballs but i broke them quickly because the ball used to go into the cartridge so i stopped using those.

Ummm, OK.

I use a Parker fountain pen. I hate biros. I find that fountain pens seem to flow across the page better... not literally of course, and they put more ink on the page instead of leaving really weak bits. Also I don't like the way the ball points on biros seem to make me feel like there's more friction with the paper and I seem to have to drag them along rather than the smooth way fountain pens write. And that makes my handwriting even more messy.

Exactly, I just don't wanna write in a strange way.

Exactly, no need to use a pen when he created Notepad.

It's not strange just very different to the standard writing style. I can't write the "standard" way i find it's very uncomfortable

It'd be uncomfortable for me if my writing was straight, but I write slanted, so that's not a problem. I wouldn't like writing with the paper at an angle though, or upside-down.

I've seen someone write with the paper side-ways and write up the page. I turn my pen "up-side down" so when i'm writing the nib is looking straight at me, that's the best way i can describe it.

I don't know how you can have time to use Tippex in an exam - I just scribble away. My writing is appauling by the end of the exam!

Aha now the issue of Pens is a very interesting one no? From my conclusive tests of pens (through a "knockout competition" in a stationary shop) I determined that my personal ideal pen is the Staedtler fineliner 306 S. It is smooth and flowing, yet is not too inky (as I experienced with my previous choice, the PaperMate accupoint (Fine)). You can write both slowly and quickly very neatly, it is comfortable to hold and never blots the page. Those of you who like to use thin paper will be glad to hear that the ink does not show through on the other side. And at around £1.20 - £1.50 (can't remember exactly) it's a Bargain!

Hmm the fact that I spent so much time finding the perfect pen probably says a lot about the state of my social life...

I always use bic biros because they're quick and easy to write with as a post to the notes I make in class which I usually make in black fountain pen. I've never understood why everyone likes gel ink so much, I don't find them that easy too use.

Don't you think its about time exams were properly computerised? I don't know about you but I can type a lot faster than I can write!

my friend typed hers this year because she had very bad ecsema (sp) on her ahnd and she said it was so much easier- but ti would be distracting hearing everyone else typing and you'd have to make sure you couldn't see anyone elses screens etc. it's just not practical.
