I love mechanical pencil! Never spend time to sharpen wooden pencil!
The lead helps a lot!
I have to disagree with this list because every time I use mechanical pencils, they break, it’s very annoying
This may be a weird reason, but trust me, better ones will come.

It's so annoying to have to go to the trash can to throw away your pencil shavings in the middle of doing something!
True! Even the word 'mechanical' at the front should tell you it's better.
This is the best reason. I love technology.
I hate it when you get that one decorative pencil, but it is just wood with plastic wrapped around it. Then when you try to sharpen it, it just keeps breaking and breaking, until finally you end up with a stub.
My wooden pencils always break. Mechanical pencils are reliable.
Especially if you're a lefty and wood pencils make everything smear all over the place. (I speak from personal experience.) - RockFashionista
Assuming mechanical pencils are the same thing as pens, I agree. I hate having to not only sharpen pencils, but also the fact they can get extremely tiny.
This is the best part. I especially hate if I'm hand-writing a paragraph and you can clearly see where I've sharpened my pencil because it just gets continuously messy...
Agree,my pencil get short very fast.
If you're one of those people that write too hard, then get lead (and a mechanical pencil) with more thickness.
0.5, 0.7, 1.2, just to name a few. But my favorite one is 0.7, it's not too thick and not too thin.
Plastic mechanical pencils can easily be sharpened. Why bother killing trees?
Well, that's true. Also, paper is made of trees though so I don't need to waste.
You don't kill trees, the manufacturers do.
It is good so you don't kill trees
Yeah, this makes it way more comfortable to write.
Wooden pencils only have one long piece of graphite through the wood but, the skinny pieces of graphite inside the mechanical pencil would end up having more graphite in it.
True, true very true
No, mechanical pencils have a boring flat point, while wooden pencils can be very sharp.
Wood pencils make my hands but mechancils do not.
All pencils do
