I have several starter pens, jinhaos, preppys, platinum desk pens, pilot penmanship, metros and parallels. I prefer very fine Japanese nibs.
I like to take pens apart to fix them and often end up 'fixing them' for good.
I live dangerously and mix my inks.
I will write practice sentences repeatedly just to play with my pens.
I look forward to meeting everyone.

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!

Welcome Anna !
On my tenth birthday, I was given a new watch, which I took apart before first wearing. All the parts, save one, are in an heirloom box, to remind me that "fixing" is not my calling. I have 100 functioning, vintage fountain pen, none of which were restored by yours-truly. Maybe, someday, I will try again.
Write with joy.
