Greetings From Hotlanta


Recommended Posts

Greetings all! My name is Tracie Lee and I live in Buckhead, Georgia and I am a pen enthusiast and writer. I love everything to do with pens, paper, writing, ink, etc. I have a bunch of pens, but now I feel like I need to educate myself on the proper maintenance of my pens, the best papers to use for the different types, what inks are preferable, which nibs are better (fine, medium, broad), etc. I look forward to conversing with you on these and other topics.

Hi Tracie and :W2FPN:


FPN is just the right place to learn all about those subjects you mention.


Hope you'll enjoy yourself.

Welcome !


This is the right place. Fellow members have done so much of the evaluation of inks and papers, etc. for us. We just have to decide what we want our ink to look like and what we want the ink to do. As for nibs -- how do you want your writing to look ?


I have had much fun here. Wishing you the same. (What color are your fingers today ?) :lticaptd:

Write with joy.

Welcome to the FPN! We have oodles of information and even more lively discussions regarding paper. Or we just show off our accumulations and our works. Or we just chitchat.


There isn't any magic combination of good anything, though. Each pen is a unique experience, and a simple google search on here regarding moleskine can show you that. There are people who got lucky with moleskines and hit the right combination of nibs and inks, and then there are those who bought stacks and are cursing the brand using all the offensives from The Devil's Dictionary (which, one of our member is illustrating and copying out... for fun. It's a magnificent work). We can show you the options, but it's really trial and error.


We're a bunch of enablers. Welcome to the world where you step in and you just don't go back :P

Tes rires retroussés comme à son bord la rose,

Effacent mon dépit de ta métamorphose;

Tu t'éveilles, alors le rêve est oublié.

Welcome Tracie! For some reason, I completely missed this post, lol. At least I got to welcome you over at the Virtual Pen Posse though, Just FYI, we are currently working on our next meeting time and place for the Atlanta Pen & Ink Fans group (APIF) ^_^. Several people here (like Flake above) are part of the group, so it would be great if you can make it too! Watch the "Clubs, Meetings & Events" forum here on FPN (or the VPP group page) for the details and announcements!


BTW, hope we see you in the Virtual Pen Posse chat room (you can click the link in my signature below to get to the log in page- no password required!).

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
