Fountain Pen Quest Trail Log – March 24, 2019

I was less consistent in using my pens this past week. I only journaled 4 out of the 7 days, and those were short half-page entries. The drafts of the articles that will post this week used more ink than those journal entries. A little note taking rounded out my pen usage.

I did finally write a pen dry, two actually. The Fisher of Pens Hermes and Visconti Homo Sapien Bronze both went dry yesterday. While my impulse is to simply refill them, I have a lot of pens inked and I want to work through some others. So, they’ll go back into the pen case once they’re cleaned.

With the good weather coming (hopefully), I stopped carrying the Fodderstack XL in my shirt pocket. Winter shirts have bigger pockets and thicker material to hold it in place. I still carry the notebook, but now my Kaweco pocket pen will get more use. It will often be the only pen I have on me. This also comes with me finishing off the Nock Co. Pocket notebook that I carried in it. The notebook went into the shredder. New new notebook will be in my pocket, sans-case.
