Still practicing with my fountain pen … haven’t give up on that … yet.
It’s as if I have to make up my mind what to do with the whole project: as things stand now, I can use it and write in my ordinary way, but only on certain kinds of paper.
If I use it and write with my arm in a strange, twisted position, I can write anywhere. Then I also get a different handwriting.
So … it’s all a matter of what I want to do.
- Do I only want to write with it here at home ?
- Do I want to carry it with me, in order to always be able to bring out this beautiful writing instrument?!
Time will probably tell.
This morning, however, I decided to test it in one of my Moleskine Notebooks. I had a Moleskine, ruled, soft-cover lying around here, and I wanted to see what the paper was like … how the pen acted. It wasn’t good — it bled through. I wrote in the twisted postition, by the way. Not sure how a fine nib would have done — I don’t think that’s the issue.
