A Writer’s Favorite Pen

Writers: I think we can all agree that we are a pretty strange breed.  We live in our imaginations (as brilliant as they may be,)  we grow to love characters that don’t really exist and we exist in a world of, “what ifs.”  I could go on and on describing our unique nature…

Included in our quirkiness is the desire for the perfect writer’s tool – – our favorite pen!  I choose to write with fountain pens.  For me, there is a certain nostalgic and artsy warmth that I feel each time I’m using one in my collection.  Right now, my favorite is a Blue Marble Jinhao X450 and my ink color for now is a beautiful dark teal.  Ahhh, love it!  I’m wondering how many of my blog friends share my appreciation for a lovely fountain pen?  I don’t know if it’s the writer or the nerd in me, but either way, I’m OK with it! 🙂

Last year, the first Fountain Pen Day was celebrated and I’m pleased to announce that it will be celebrated again this year on November 1, 2013!  This date is very appropriate as it also kicks off National Novel Writing Month.
