The man with gold lead in his pencil couldn’t write!
He tried a gold paperweight on his desk but still the words would not come.
A gold-tin he purchased containing gems and jewels and scattered them did all around his desk in the hope of inspiring him with beauty.
A name, a game, insane.
He began scribbling with a jewel , a pointed diamond and into his desk scratched his name. He tried other jewels in the same way and gave them to the mice if they were no good for writing with wrapped in hunks of cheese from the kitchen.
The mice ran this way and that with the pieces and then he thought I am better at writing now. I will try my gold pencil again.
Unsurprisingly it did not work again this time either.
So the man went out and purchased an army of magnetically trained worker ants. A million to a colony. Then under his desk, he worked with magnets making the ants move as he did around the desk in the shape of letters. He spelled his name. The ants were up his nose in his hair and eyes and he felt like he was going insane. Until he thought there’s an easier way than this! I’ll try my gold pencil again.
But unsurprisingly it did not work.
He went full out trying all sorts of ways trying to make a mark with his golden pencil. Hitting it , bashing it with a hammer, using it as a chisel, a hole punch until crying he said. I can take no more!
He put down his pencil and cried himself to sleep…
TWO years later the man had written a novel with his golden pencil! Remember when before he couldn’t even write his own name. How did he do it?
