Hello! I'm new to fountain pen use. Picked up my first fountain pen after reading Natalie Goldberg on journaling and writing with a fountain pen. People who write a lot need a pen that can keep up, she maintains. Right she is. I write a lot everyday in a blank moleskin notebook. I was using a felt tip. Very slow. I took the plunge. I bought a disposable type shaeffer at Hobby Lobby. (I hear you cringing!) Too many starts and stops, flow probs. Long story short, after a leaky TWSBI and stops and starts on a Nemosine I got a Lamy 2000 Fine nib after reading a jazillion reviews. Now I'm finally beginning to know what I'd like. Something as reliable as the Lamy 2000, piston fill, faster/more ink flow, lighter weight. I write fairly quickly, not particularly hard pressing or small handwriting. Just sort of flowy mess. Also, I don't have a preference as to caps, posting or not but I don't like a screw on cap. Any suggestions? Any full size blank notebook favorites as well? Paper preferences? Thanks!
