Hi everyone!

 

Just introducing myself as I plan to creep around the site for a while! I live in Las Vegas and have always had terrible handwriting. A year or two ago I bought my first fountain pen, a LAMY Safari, then a few other cheap pens to try to get a feel for them. I had purchased a few books on handwriting and even watched the Lloyd Reynolds writing series someone had posted on YouTube to try and get better with every intention of someday having writing skills others would envy. I got discouraged quickly and gave it up for a while but I'm back!

 

I'm hoping to use this site for information and motivation to keep me going. It also doesn't hurt that I got a beautiful new MB from my wife for Christmas :-)

 

See you all around!

Welcome !  

 

Write casual notes to your wife.  Write to friends and family.  There is no shame in admitting to 

them that you like to practice you penmanship.  Write slowly.  Shape each letter to be the way 

you wish it to appear.  If you encounter a written character that you like better than your own, 

use it.  

 

Try playing your favorite music, while writing letters.  I like "Big Country" and "The Magnificent 

Seven",

Thanks, glad to see at least one other LV member! I was Googling around for pen shows here and was coming up blank but hopefully something comes up in 2018 so I can browse around!

Great recommendations! I'll certainly be following through on each of these in the very near future :)

Hello 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!
