A writing implement or writing instrument is an object used to produce writing. Most of these items can be also used for other functions such as painting, drawing and technical drawing, but writing instruments generally have the ordinary requirement to create a smooth, controllable line.
Another writing implement employed by a smaller population, is the stylus used by blind users in conjunction with the slate for punching out the dots in Braille.
Famous quotes containing the word writing:
“All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.”
—F. Scott Fitzgerald (18961940)
