There’s no practice tool quite like a pencil. 

It creates a record of what you’ve already worked on, and a plan to make it better next time.

It forces you to pause and think—which leads to clarity.  What marking will help you the most?  What exactly are you trying to accomplish here?

It’s erasable.  When something doesn’t serve you anymore, you can remove it or make changes.

It’s endlessly customizable.  You can make your marks big, small, dark, light, simple, fancy, clean, messy.

It helps you use a different part of your brain, which etches your learning deeper into memory.

The best place for a pencil is in your hand, pressed to paper.

The second best place is on your stand, ready for use.
