The waiting is the hardest part

Tom Petty said it best, sometimes waiting is the hardest part. Though I’m pretty sure he wasn’t talking about making prototypes!

The most commonly asked question I get is what’s my favorite part about making pens. And while it’s easy to say my Least favorite (paperwork!), my most favorite is a lot harder to say. I love the design phase where I’m sketching it all out and see what’s aesthetically pleasing. I love the nitty gritty, defining the actual specs of each piece and getting those to fit the design. And I REALLY love seeing it all come to fruition, especially when it turns out as good as I had hoped.

But in designing pens there is the inevitable part of needing to order supplies. Some are less of a priority than others. But the raw material is pretty much a key component. So when I’m anxious to move forward on a new Kickstarter (Oops!) pen design, seeing this is the hardest part.
