The October Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper

Alright! The October Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper has finally arrived. I had many great submissions, and I added several more to try to round out the selection. You can tell you really have a problem with pen, pencils, and paper if you have already read all of these links, so I hope you can find something new in the mix, too.

If you have any final postings you really think should be included, I am happy to add them. My e-mail address is on the top right of the page. Thank you for visiting, and please comment to let me know what you think of the selection. Thank you!
