Another quote about writing! When I stop working, the rest of the day is posthumous. I’m only really alive when I’m writing. – Tennessee Williams
Willie Nelson has it right! I’m not a writer in the sense of being an author, but I do feel happy when I’m using my pens! How about you?
I have been admiring the IAMPETH updates online, and it makes me think of how much time, energy, effort, and dedication these skilled calligraphers have. They devote themselves to learning every detail there is in creating stunning scripts, and they make it look so easy.
This was not written with a Chatelaine pen, and I do chuckle at the idea of pinning a pen to my dress. Seems inky and risky! Do you have any Chatelaine pens?
Ok, I wouldn’t put such saturated/particle-laden inks in all my pens, but it sure looks fun. The Witching Hour sounds creepy. Like that Inking Hour when suddenly I have 30 pens inked and I don’t know what happened.

Vintage pens are not just for collectors! They’re also for users, writers, artists, and everyone else! I use mine to doodle and sketch, to write important things, unimportant things, and everything else. Pair it with a good notebook and it’s definitely bliss.
I imagine many people don’t give themselves enough credit for their written words – whether it’s literature or artistic. As a result, others are probably swept away by one’s work. Sweep yourself away, too.

Well, maybe not everything, but I’ll forget all the little important details. Therefore, I write as much down as possible. I don’t really keep everything I write – they’re just passing notes to myself. Once the tasks …
If I had any artistic skills, this would be a great concept to draw: “good writing is like a windowpane”. What is good writing to you? Letters to friends? Love letters? Jokes in your kids’ lunch boxes?
