Fountain Pens for Romantic Writing

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

There is nothing like an amazing fountain pen to get you in the mood for some serious writing.

Fountain pens are incredibly romantic, particularly when used with a good ink well. How can you possibly keep a good journal without a decent writing instrument? How could any proper Victorian lady write with a ballpoint pen?

Everyone has their favourites. Personally, I prefer Waterman, http://www.waterman.com/en/ but there are many amazing brands out there. Just make sure that the nib is of good quality. A poor nib can destroy your pen experience and discourage you very quickly.

I ran across a great website for detailed information on how to choose a pen http://www.marcuslink.com/pens/index.html Check it out! The author has obviously devoted a lot of time to researching writing instruments.

A fine fountain pen is incredibly luxurious. It makes sublime what might otherwise seem a rather mundane activity. It forces you to slow down, to refill your pen and to truly contemplate your work. As a fine home cooked meal is to MacDonalds, so a fountain pen to ballpoint one. There really is no comparison.

I agree, A fine fountain pen is an exquisite writing instrument. Puts the joy back into writing, adds an element of pride and joy which is just great!
