71196645.jpgI was putting up for sale signs for a house I’m selling Thursday night because I was off Friday morning for a writing retreat weekend. When I returned home my trusty pen that I’ve had for over fifteen years was half gone. I love keeping things a long time. I get attached to them. And I was off to a writing retreat weekend without my long time friend my pen.

Well taking my fun account money I visited my favorite pen store Paradise Pen Company and bought an original Mark Twain Conklin pen. It has Mark Twains signature right on the pen. Well I can’t tell you how inspired I am with my new pen. My girlfriend is getting jealous of it because I just hold it when thinking.
