As is the case with my pen collection, I've always got room for just one more =)

Just a heads up that this little project is under way. Yuki now has possession of our journal and is hopefully writing a more interesting entry than mine biggrin.gif

I haven't actually written anything yet. I was saving the fun for one of my lengthier lunchbreaks. I might write up the list of participants, an introduction and a few haiku before I pass it along.

I realised that as more people express interest, a hardcopy list of participants would become redundant so I'll be sending an email/PM around with a list shortly and will update as necessary. As for the order of participation, I know some of our participants are within close proximity of each other and may wish to pass the journal along over coffee rather than post it so I'm going to leave the order open. Feiye's already started a name/contact details thing at the back of the journal so do add your details when it's your turn so that later recipients know who has already had a turn. Hopefully this all goes smoothly =)

Quick update: I've started scribbling some random things in the journal in what may resemble dried blood, but rest assured, it is actually ink. I'll fill a couple more pages with a few different pens and then pass the journal on to Claustrum when the Sydney FPN-ers meet up on Sunday. And regarding 'the list', I'm told that the PM system is a bit dodgy for some people and I can't find anyway to mass email people via FPN so what I'm going to do is post a list in this thread and repost with an updated list everytime we get a new recipient/participant. So far on the list (in order of expressing interest) we have:

1. Yuki Onitsura (currently in possession)
2. Claustrum
3. Feiye (had half a turn in so far as taking first page honours)
4. Youstruckgold
5. Chazzozz
6. Chris Chalmers
7. Miranda
8. jimg
9. mumsdarlings
10. fuchsiaprincess
11. hexadecimal
12. DAYoung
13. ebargoum
14. dongara
15. alburyscott

Yep, looking forward to it as well. I'll have to see how many different inks I can use in a short space of time. smile.gif

I'm trying to put in as many inks as I can and since I really can't be stuffed filling and flushing out a dozen fountain pens, I'll probably fiddle with my dip pen a bit tomorrow.

Gee, that'll be a well-travelled journal by the time it's done! If you want, I'd be happy to have it back again to scan it and make it available to everyone, so we can all have a copy of the finished product.

Oh yes, that would be wonderful. I was going to do the scanning myself but you've saved me the trouble of figuring out where I buried the software required to do so =)

Hi all

Just to keep you all informed, I have written a page in the book. I'll add some more this weekend with a few different pens.
Now back to my coffee, a single origin "Democratic of the Congo, Matadi" roasted by myself just last weekend. Yummmm.... :-)
