At what point (or pen count) does simply using and enjoying writing with fountain pens and not giving it much thought morph into: --an interest ? --a hobby? --a passion? --an obsession? --a disease/hoarding disorder? --and a happy state of recovery? What was the greatest number of pens you owned at one time and what is the stable number that you are comfortable with?
pmhudepo posted a topic in The Write StuffNew research uses (changes in) handwriting to detect Parkinson's diseases. Not specific to the use of fountain pens, perhaps an interesting read nonetheless: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/09/130909105033.htm One of the variables measured is pressure exerted on the writing surface. I think fountain pen users apply less pressure and I wonder if that might affect the results?
