Writing with the Golden Shimmer Rollerball is a "Cross" You Might Want to Bear
For some writers a pen is more than a writing tool, it's a symbol of a dream realized or a goal attained.
For some writers buying a pen represents a goal reached or a dream realized
Writers can be picky about their pens, whether it’s a .99 cent ballpoint, or a $1.50
rollerball it must feel right in the hand.
Moreover, many writers view buying a pen a symbol of an achievement, or accomplishment in their writing careers and will choose a pen that represents that milestone.
I’m one such writer and this birthday I wanted to reward myself for writing web content one solid year, and winning first prize in a major playwrighting competition in March.
When my spouse asked what I wanted for my birthday I had a ready answer. I wanted a gold-filled Cross pen.
I’ve purchased Cross pens in the past and have always been happy with them, but this banner year, I wanted a gold pen.
Yes, hubby I want a slim Cross pen that will not be bulky in my billfold (I’m constantly taking my pen out to write notes for future articles) and I want it to be truly beautiful. (Of course, I could take notes with any pen, but ‘any pen’ would not adequately reflect my writing achievements the way a ‘truly beautiful’ Cross pen would. (Anyway, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!)
The next day hubby and I go down to our local Barnes & Noble store and I buy the “Spire Golden Shimmer Rollerball Pen.”
When I get it home, I take it out of the box and start writing with it immediately. It wrote like a dream and my thoughts seemed to flow as smooth as the ink as I quickly jotted down some ideas (like this one) for future articles.
The ‘Spire” collection are slender in design with sleek, faceted clips, golden shimmer appointments, brilliant diamond etchings and has a lifetime mechanical guarantee.
In the past I’ve purchased fancy fountain pens from other stores, but without exception each of them made my fingers inky and don’t ‘go the distance’ without skipping.
When I wrote a poem, before I got to the second stanza, the pen would skip, and by the time I got it to flow again, the idea (or the right word) would be gone. Not a good situation for me when I want to get my thoughts down before they disappear like soap bubbles.
In conclusion, using my “Spire Golden Shimmer Rollerball” helps my ideas flow, and symbolizes the accomplishments in my chosen field---all of which makes me a happy camper indeed.
