    Default Just A Little Ink On My Fingers

    Itís exciting to be reading your posts and I hope to contribute to the conversations.

    Not only am I knew to FPGeeks but Iím new to fountain pens as well.

    Iím a lefty and bought a fountain pen a few years ago and didnít have much success so I sold it to a friend.

    Recently as I began to bullet journal I started to use a Platinum Preppy as I heard the ink dries reasonably quick.

    Sure enough, with care, Iím finding success with fountain pens as a lefty.

    Partially because Iím being mindful and intent in my writing. I see this whole process as meditative and a way to connect deeper with my thoughts and ideas.

    Recently I upgraded from the Preppy to a Platinum 3776 and I can tell the Fountain Pen obsession has taken hold of me. 🤣
