I love narrow rule. I am distressed by the proliferation of wide and college rule over my preferred form. Difficult and expensive to find; I snuffle it out online and make special trips to stationers that I know occasionally stock the stuff, no matter how many miles out of my way. Nothing makes me feel more like I am performing a focused, worthwhile bit of writing like narrow rule, as appose to the scrawly mess I make on fat lined paper – as though a drunken spider has danced over the page after being dipped in a well of black ink.
Stationery sellers, I implore you: we are adults, we can write between the lines, sell us the good stuff.
