Remedial penmanship

Remedial penmanship

It all started here: http://www.wsj.com/articles/pens-for-better-penmanship-dont-forget-how-to-write-1409934039

 

I asked for a Christmas gift and was thrilled to receive a Lamy Al-Star. Reading the FPN forums led me to a 1.1 cursive italic nib...and a Lamy Studio with a 1.1 cursive italic...and Lamy gold nibs in F and M.

 

Spelunking the forums brought me to now 10 pens, and I want to share that story. 2 are still in the mail, one actually at Mottishaw's shop because I found the nib scratchy with others I later used. I've had so much fun using every one, the inks, the purchasing, the beauty, but now at 10 I think I am really, really, really done. Or, at least, here I should stop so that my list isn't yet quite complete and could be surprised for a gift. Never found a Nakaya that completely sang to me, but maybe someday it'd be good to try...

 

A question: if I wanted to tell the story of the 10 pens, which really in many respects will be shameless bragging in some respects but in others a hope to give comparison among a few brands, where should I post such a blog? I don't want to parse some into the country, region, or brand-specific forums.

 

Many thanks for reading! I've learned and drooled so much from your posts!!

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
