ENDED UGLee Pen Review & Giveaway!

Uglee Pen

I like to write. I mean, no kidding, I have this blog, right? But what I mean is that I like the physical act of writing. Pen to paper feels so much more personal to me than typing on a computer. I know that it's more time effective to type, but there is nothing quite like having a notebook I can scribble in. I like to make lists, journal entries, name it. The only problem with writing a lot is that I get cramps in my hands after a short time. Maybe I'm getting old, or maybe I've just become accustomed to doing more typing than writing, but it seems that as time goes on, it takes less and less writing to get my hand painfully cramped up. Sometimes it even feels achy for a day or two after I do a lot of writing.

Because I don't want to stop writing, aches and pains or not, I was intrigued when I heard about the UGLee pen, an ergonomic pen designed by a doctor. The UGLee pen was made to help prevent hand cramping. The shaft is made of a soft, squishy, rubbery grip. It's a clicker pen, and the ink is okay but not the best. I guess the tip is just not as fine as I would prefer, but it does write pretty well.

I was, to be honest, a little skeptical that using the UGLee pen would make a difference. But considering that I've been able to hand address a slew of envelopes this week with no cramping whatsoever, I'd have to say that it works for me. Without a doubt, my hand would normally be hurting pretty badly after doing as much writing as I've done this week. I'm a new fan of the UGLee pen!

UGLee pens come in black ink, in your choice of barrel color. You can purchase ink refill cartridges in black, blue, or red. These pens cost more than I'd normally be willing to spend on writing instruments, but purchasing ink refills would make them more cost efficient. And if you write a lot and/or hand cramping is a problem for you, then they're worth the price.
