Hi! I have diary where I write personal things and journal about general stuff. Wonder if roller ball pen would be suitable for documenting. I know that it has water-based ink and I used that one in the past I remeber. The result was that some water that spilled from glass and got on diary later washed my writings. The pen I used was not exactly with roller ball end but it was something that reminds a blue wick but plastic one. I don't know the correct term. Usually I use oil-based pens but wanted to switch to water-based roller ball pen because I heard that is gives smoother writing experience reminding fountain pen which I like but I don't think it's something I would take with me constantly. I am trying to look at this logically since diary is something I would probably want to look back to in the future and I don't know how will water-based ink hold on. Like I said, the pen I used once with it's water-based ink that washed out writings in my diary did not have that edge like roller ball pens do with rolling ball so I wonder if some of you here write with water inks in their diaries. Since this is general forum, I wonder if there is more appropriate forum here to discuss this sort of thing. I also want to talk about scrapbooks and journals. By the way, can anyone give me case scenarios when to use and not to use roller ball pen? We can have this discussion going here but it will be kind of you to point me to correct forum. Thanks
