this was very confusing. The drop down said writers, as in people, and I couldn't really figure how the black pencils figured in...I put "I don't ever like black pencil writers," which sounds odd, but isn't that the literal translation? I don't know where the writers went to in this sentence!

Drop downs are hints, never sure things. As you hoer your cursor over the words, they change.

I think the logical translation will be: I never liked black pencils, but marked wrong.
