It was time for some fountain pen therapy this past week. I’d been using pens and inks based on what was on the review list, which left little time for my old favorites. A week ago I pulled out my favorite pen case – a Penvelope Six in well-worn Boot Brown leather. Then I went through my pens and filled the six slots with the pens that caught my attention and were just waiting to be used. This brought me to 19 pens inks but so what . A couple pens were already inked and I kept them going. I’ve been using these pens all week so new reviews will be slower. I have a couple ready to be written but the backlog is gone so things will be slower. Instead I’ll be enjoying my pens.
I’ve been picking one pen/ink as my primary writer for the day. I’ve been posting my selection to Instagram.
