Typed up the handwritten draft of my book. I now have 40,000 words of a novel-like substance: http://ping.fm/CcJJO
Thanks, Susan, for the links to the ink. For a while, I was addicted to black. But now, the funkier the color, the better. And your blue’s so pretty. Pity they’re not making them any more. I’ll have to try their new blue.
Love the color of that ink, too. It’s not the usual India blue ink. What color/brand is it? I’m curious, why boxed Math paper pads? My husband prefers those, too, to ruled, and I’ve never been able to figure out why.
Keira, I am so glad you asked! One of my first posts on this blog was about the Peacock Blue ink I use, and mourning its demise (it’s been replaced by plain ol’ turquoise, which is pretty enough, but it’s no Peacock Blue). It comes in cartridges and inkwells by Skrip and can be found in most good office-supply stores and online. Here’s the original post: http://s22529.p716.sites.pressdns.com/2007/01/24/passionate-about-peacock-blue-ink/
Whenever I write about a writer, she almost always uses this ink.
I really like the pen you use. Just seeing that pen makes me want to hand write all my work too!!! Thats not saying anything about the color…wow!
Good luck with your new book and have a fabulous day!
I love this pen, too. It is weightless and flows–important for us lefties. It’s a Schaeffer (I always spell that wrong) Javelin. Very affordable, like $30. I keep thinking I have earned a fancy, expensive pen but I always come back to this one.
