I would like you to tell me about your most favorite writing pens. The one(s) that you reach for when you plan on sitting down and staying for a while…. filling page after page of your thoughts, plans, dreams and aspirations, shopping lists and homework.
Before I started writing with a fountain pen, (and I have 14 of them now… I know, it’s a problem… LOL) my #1 go to pen for as long as I can remember was a Papermate Stick Pen. I’d buy them at Staples in boxes of 100 and they are still all over my house from the last box I bought back in 2001. (Seriously) Once I tried my first fountain pen, (a medium nibbed Lamy Safari that I bought at Pendemonium) there was really no going back. Fountain pens allow for such effortless writing that I just had to have another, and another… They are like potato chips – you can’t have just one.
For times when I don’t want to carry a fountain pen, I have 1 new fancy rollerball, (the Pelikan R400 shown above) that I bought used from the Marketplace on the Fountain Pen Network. It’s really nice in the hand, but I’ve found that $1 Signo stick pens seem to write just as nice and come in a plethora of color options.
So tell me… which pens are your favorites?
