Fridge Flash: The Great Pencil

December 20, 2016

In this week’s Fridge Flash, ten-year-old Nikhil Sampath shares an homage to our most important writing utensil, the pencil.

By Nikhil Sampath 

In every pencil there is a story waiting to unfold. I as a writer have to let it unfold. When I write I let it come through without any thought. All hail—the Great Pencil.

nikNikhil Sampath is a ten-year-old Rubik’s cube enthusiast and an ardent Harry Potter fan. He loves to read and play the piano.
