My blog post #94 was entitled ‘handwriting’. It was about being left-handed and fountain pens. Since then, I’ve been practicing, holding my hand differently, while writing with an ordinary gel pen. That produces a while different style of script, but so be it. I went ahead and ordered a fountain pen from Amazon (Staples were sold out!), it will arrive on Friday.
This feels exciting! At the ripe age of sixty, I’m finally getting to be the owner/user of a fountain pen. We’ll see how it goes — eventually, I may post a sample. That would go to prove that “it’s never too late”. My motto rather used to be “it’s never too late to give up” 🙂 Now another question will present itself: “What will I write with it?” It’s not like I have a bunch of pen pals, like I did when I was a teenager.
