How To Hold One’s Implement
ONE OF the reasons for the sheer QUALITY of the prose in my astonishing adventures is that I, being a well-bred, well-educated sort of a chap, have learnt how to hold my pen correctly.
Some people – especially commoners – seem mystified by the correct usage of this writing implement, and clutch it between their teeth, or hold it firmly betwixt their buttocks, or simply lay it on the desk and bat at it, like a curious cat. Some even wind up jabbing it into their own eyeball and proceed to run about the room screaming in agony that writing is pain, which it can be but normally it entices mental rather than physical discomfort.
So, in order to help these soft-brained simpletons and to cut down on the number of emergency ward admissions, you shall find a guide to the CORRECT way to hold one’s pen above, as found by the delightfully-named Graphics Fairy.
I, of course, have ne’er had trouble holding my own.
