Sunday Notes and Links – January 15, 2017

Currently Inked - January 1, 2017

The same set of pens for yet another week.

It was another typical week of fountain pen usage. With seven pens inked up I picked a different one as my primary writer each day to give them all a chance. While there was one day with heavier than normal note taking most of my writing consisted of one journal page each night and a few notes during the day. No pens went dry and no new pens were inked up. This makes three weeks in a row with the same set of pens.

Pen Shows & Clubs

The first US pen show of the year is going on this weekend in Philadelphia. In honor of the event I’ve updated my pen show page to include all shows that have scheduled dates in 2017.
