I've noticed a lot of members enthusing about writing by hand, about using typewriters, about a love of paper, notebooks, journals and stationary. And I've noticed that a lot of us use journals to track our lives, to support our planning and writing, to jump start NaNoWriMo, or as bullet journals.

I'm finding, personally, that I use paper and pens and pencils as ancillary tools for my digital writing. There's always paper at hand whether I'm using my laptop or my iPad. I especially rely on paper and fountain pen for drafts, and for writing postcards and letters.

So here's a place to discuss analog tools, the pencils, pens, fountain pens, and paper we love, and how we use them in our lives and our writing.

What do you use? How do you use it?
