Hello, I'm from the states but lived in France for a while where I first used a FP. Fast-forward 25 years and I was writing on the whiteboard at work and realized how atrocious my handwriting has become! So in my normal fashion, I created a game for myself. I have to write a bit daily and actively try to improve my penmanship. The school part is on hold waiting for the new release of Spencerian Handwriting book which will be my exercises. The quizzes, if you will, are writing letters each week (can't remember the last time I sent a personal letter snail-mail). Since I know myself I already bought the prize (a new camera) which will force me to follow through!
After reading a number of reviews I purchased a Pilot VP, some Tomoe River loose sheet to practice on, and three trial-sized Iroshizulu inks (which I can't remember the names of). I've been very impressed with the community here. The thorough reviews, random swaps, and overall helpful attitudes are what made me want to join.
A few randoms (trying to be funny):
- Greatest new FP user fear: that I won't finish any of the bottles of ink before they expire
- Greatest new FP user hope: to one day write an ink review that is as good as Sandy1's
