Some say it was Ernest Hemingway who coined the saying: Write Drunk, Edit Sober.
It most likely wasn’t.
But, while medical professionals might not endorse such a routine, science has found there is some truth and usefulness in the practice of writing without inhibition in the interests and creativity, and then polishing later in the interests of accuracy.
With these pencils, you can subscribe to the Hemingway-esque philosophy in spirit, if not in spirits.
Each of the two pencils in this set are unsharpened, rubber-topped and measure 17cm long.
As the pencils are made from wood – a natural material – there are natural variations in colour between individual pieces, as the image shows.
Pencils are sent by Royal Mail first class postage in the UK, and standard international shipping elsewhere.
