I really enjoyed all of the placed photos in your recent article--the pencils, the blank page, and the typesetting blocks of fonts and type. I can relate to all of it. You see, I'm a former graphic designer. I lived in that world for many years of my life. Thank you for sharing all of it. I've "lived a life in pencil" all of these past many years and it's all that I've ever known. I have quite literally held a pencil in my hand and doing something with it for my whole entire life. Like you, I'm also a "writer." Albeit of a different kind.
