Aloha everyone,

 

Just got a new Pelican M200, Pelican ink, Rhodia pad, and Spencerian Guide Book.

All I need to do now is fix my illegible 6+ decades old penmanship.

 

Open to suggestions. I guess practice and practice.

 

Newbie.

Hello Jim 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!

Aloha everyone,

 

 

Open to suggestions. I guess practice and practice.

 

Newbie.

j :)

Welcome !  

 

Yes, practice.  However, practicing can be dull.  I suggest concentrating on shaping each letter, as you wish it to appear.  Find opportunities to write.  Letters to friends and family.  Grocery lists.  Start a journal.  Sometimes, I play music while writing.  

 

Write with joy.  


Auf freiem Grund mit freiem Volke stehn. 
Zum Augenblicke dürft ich sagen: 
Verweile doch, du bist so schön !
