I love pens, have rather a lot in fact .....my nicest pen would be my Mont Blanc Bourne Noir, but whilst the most expensive, it's not the nicest in my
collection to write with.
That place is taken by a cheap 99p pink plastic Hello Kitty fountain pen that I got from my kids when they were little lol....it just writes beautiful
on any paper.
My every day pen would be a Parker fountain pen, also a Parker rollerball for crosswords and the likes.
Ink wise, I stick mostly to Parker cartridges and bottled ink, but for my personal letters I like to use a variety of inks, from Noodler's Bulletproof
black ink, to other more nice colours such as the Diamine reds, purples, turquoise and the likes.
All in all though, I just love the art of writing, not really too fussed about what people use...as long as they don't lose the skill of holding a pen
in their hand. A handwritten letter makes someone's day when it drops on the doormat.
My teacher taught me calligraphy from the age of eight, and to this day I still use the same pen as well as many others for italic work on letters.
Every year I participate in the World Handwriting Championship too, not that I ever get anywhere lol....it's just nice to take part alongside
like-minded writing enthusiasts.
