It all Started with a Pen: The Love of Language


It all started with a pen.

Do you still use a pen to write?

Not a cheap, dollar-store pen, but a proper pen.

There is a weight to the words when you use a proper pen, like a Mont Blanc, to write words on a sheet of paper.

They mean a little more than they normally would.

We chatted with Cristina Silva on a recent episode of the Move the World with Words podcast, and discussed:

  • How she fell in love with language
  • Her response to her dad making her get a job at 15, and why she chose one in language
  • Her first paid writing assignment for Mont Blanc
  • What Move the World with Words means to her
