I stumbled across this today, haven’t yet watched it all.

 

Neil is known in FP circles for using Fountain Pens, notably the Pilot 823 - for both his writing and his signings. In this Tim Ferris interview (1’ 37”), Neil talks about why he likes to use fountain pens. Some of his answers are the same as those any of us here would give, but he also talks about how fountain pen use has shaped his writing.

 

I’d watch a Neil Gaiman interview just to hear him speak about his work, but this fountain pen bit in the Ferris interview...more than worth the time to hear one of Earth’s greatest writers talk about Earth’s greatest writing tool.

so excellent thank you for posting.

though we are writers in our own rite, not trying to *be* our heroes, it helps me greatly to know that one i admire could be using the same tools i use to craft my stories

700000 signatures is a LOT of signing!!
