Miz Black Crow Is Human (We're Pretty Sure), And Thanks You
WildingLeather posted a topic in IntroductionsHi everybody! I'm Miz Black Crow, and I'm here to talk pens. I'm a writer. Perhaps not by trade--I've never been paid for a word--but I'm getting there. I recently penned my first novel on a wifi-less Macbook. And that felt really good. But it didn't feel AS GOOD as the work I've done in a journal with a ballpoint, or a gel roller, or. And so as a thank-you / congratulations / pity gift to myself, I decided I wanted a fountain pen. I'm not particular about notebooks--I default to college-ruled composition notebooks--but I've always been particular about pens. Parker Jotter ball-points and Pilot F-301s were the high point of my week. So I bought a fountain pen, a Pilot Metropolitan, and a jar of beautiful, gorgeous ink that paints my soul in gray-green-blue ( Noodler's 54th Massachusetts). I love the history of the ink. I love the feel of the pen. And these tools, that I now scribble with in my cheap composition book (housed in a leather cover that was a gift from a loving family member), were recommendations I picked up from the FPN. You as a community guided me to find beautiful things that feel good in my hand, look good on my page, that make me feel like a Real Bona-Fide WriterTM. Yes, the tools matter. My stories are better when I write them by hand. So Thank You, FPN. You are all beautiful people with beautiful pens and beautiful inks. Your advice has guided me and made me happy. I can only hope that at some point I can give back. ~Miz Black Crow

MikeyW posted a topic in IntroductionsHi all & thanks for making this community available for people to join! I'm only very new (a couple of months in) to the joys (see: addiction) of fountain pens - collecting and using - but have well & truly caught the bug and am now, very proudly, a couple of pens in to my very own tiny collection (thanks to all the fine folks out there in credit card land!). As you may have guessed from the title, I'm based in Australia and would love to know if there are many / any other members out there from this part of the world? Well that's it from me just for now - just wanted to say hi & introduce myself. Thanks again for having me - i'm really looking forward to contributing to your community wherever I can! All the best, Mike.
