I really like my wooden pencil "eco" highlighters, but for writing I am more of a mechanical pencil guy...

Anything worth doing is worth doing with an all-consuming obsession.
I'm actually not being sarcastic. Perhaps a touch ruefully self-deprecating. For me, the core feature of being a geek is taking genuine joy in things most people overlook, and I love to see people who do so with panache and try to share that joy.

I actually snooped here for a few weeks when I was looking to get some new pencils for writing. Now, that I think about it, I hadn't bought non-sketching pencils since middle school. I'd been a pen and computer guy for writing.
Ended up with the Blackwing Pearl which I don't regret at all.

Pencils for drawing, pens for writing.

Yeah. I can't deal with the sound of pencils scraping on paper. It sounds exactly the same sort of annoying as nails on a chalkboard. Fine for drawing because the angle is different. Gut-wrenchingly irritating for writing with.
Mechanical pencils are ok, though. Maybe it's higher density or quality graphite or something. I don't know.
