What I got: a quick camera shot unpacking the Newton Pen I got from Shawn Newton Friday. Obviously I'm stoked. Beautiful in every way and quite a thrill to get! It's an alabaster and tortoise Gibby model and I can't wait to get some more writing time in with it. (Maybe more on the pen down the road.)
How I got it: I won one of Shawn's scholarship raffles! This pen for $10 from me while helping a high school student get some college money through Shawn's own craftsmanship, artistry and care for students.
Shameless plug: There happens to be a new-style Newton scholarship raffle ending today. Somebody's gonna' win--I can testify to that--so I'd encourage anyone interested to enter. Shawn's raffle Info here.
