Does anyone use pencils any more or have they gone the way of the dodo bird? I have one pencil on my desk that I use occasionally for editing. I’ve finally worn the graphite down to nothing and can’t find a pencil sharpener anywhere. In fact, I can’t even remember sharpening the pencil or how this pencil even got on my desk in the first place. Time to call Mulder and Scully.

Until this pencil somehow arrived on my desk, I can’t even think of the last time I used one. I do most of my writing and editing via the computer and when I do take notes, I always use a pen.

Is it just me or are most people penciless?

And does anyone know where the nearest pencil sharpener is?
