I just want to greet all active members here. I'm Kevin, a newly registered member from Santa Monica, California. My interest for fountain pen is deeply rooted from my hobby of keeping a daily journal. Now I want to make it official by making my thoughts more tangible by translating it to words while improving my penmanship with the use of the pen.

Hello Kevin and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Which pens do you use for writing in your journal ?

Welcome aboard, Kevin, from Charleston, SC. If you are a newbie, you might look at the Reference Pages on a website called Richard's Pens: it has a wealth of info about the basics of fountain pens, their use and care, and it will help you avoid making some mistakes. A couple of other websites with useful information for newbies include PenChalet, Jetpens and the Goulet Pen Company. Goulet has made quite a few videos available on their website and on YouTube, which are helpful with some procedures related to FP use. Bear in mind that how your writing appears on the page is a complex interplay of pen, paper, nib, ink, and handwriting, so be patient as you experiment with these variables. Enjoy, and good luck.
Mike
