For my fellow fountain pen enthusiasts, geeks, and nerds who are working on their writing skills I want to wish you:
Okay, so I still have a ways to go with my special handwriting font. I wrote this on my studio desk where I have limited space. I wasn’t able to move my whole arm while I was writing. That explains the jerky writing that you see in the picture.
I need to get back into my daily handwriting practice sessions that I used to do with my calligraphy dip nibs and oblique nib holder. Except for this year, I want to be able to use my fountain pens. I need a lot of practice time and more desk space.
Several things are in the works like the much needed Spring-cleaning which I started this week. I plan on removing half the “stuff” that sits on my desk. It’s the accessories, rolls of washi tapes, pens, bottles of inks, jars, swatch cards, and vials of sample inks that I haven’t touched since the holidays.
Once I get my desk in order, I can start my practice writing sessions again.
I hope you can spend some time with your lovely pens and inks!
