Hello!  I've always loved writing with interesting pens and was gifted my first fountain pen years ago by an ex-boyfriend.  Well, with the help of a coworker, I am now becoming a little obsessed.  In the past month or two, I've bought several new fountain pens and an endless supply of inks.  I'm an English teacher by day, just graduated with my master's degree in History, and I've decided that fountain pens and such will be my new hobby.

 

My favorite ink right now is J. Herbin's 1670 Anniversary Rouge Hematite - I can't get enough of it.  I currently have several True Writer pens from Levenger, a Lamy All-Star, and I'm waiting for a Waterford pen to come in. 

 

Hello all!

 

-Erica

Welcome, Erica !  

 

Be warned that the condition of "little obsessed" does not last long.  The slope is  very 

slippery.  

 

Anyway, I am please to have you join, especially since you are in the position to recruit 

young ones.

 

Write with joy.
