Let’s have some fun, what’s your favorite quote, saying, or wish for the new year. Write it down and share with the world. It doesn’t matter if you use a fountain pen, ballpoint pen or a #2 pencil – write it down. Typing is so blah and impersonal, enjoy the effort and create something worth sharing. And don’t worry about your handwriting, mine’s atrocious.

What? You call that atrocious handwriting? It looks almost like Tolkien’s (though he used more stub nibs)! Did you mix the inks, or do they appear separately in the message? Because what I’m seeing is kinda like how my 4001 Blue Black looks. How timely to come across this post, because I just got gifted Diamine Autumn Oak yesterday, and I think I should go ink up now.
The picture does not give the inks justice. The grey is the Gandalf figure. If you look hard the Chianti Red is used to underline Gandalf and in the “A”. Speaking of the “A” is Serenity Blue an the remainder is the 4001 Black. Thanks for the question and visiting
