    Tomorrow is Fountain Pen Day. I often forget until the day of and then it's too late for the give-aways and deals.

    What is everyone doing for FPD? What deals/give-aways do you know about?

    I'm going to clean all my pens and write some letters.

    I recently found out about "commonplace books" and I'm thinking of starting one. I already keep a journal in an A5 size notebook. That's the place I mostly use my FPs.

    I'll check the sites to see if there are any good deals, but to be honest I'm in a good place with pens and inks. I've settled on a handful of pens and inks that I really enjoy writing with, so I may be missing out on some things but it's sure helped my wallet!

    Thank you for mentioning commonplace books (I just Googled it). I've never kept a journal, but this looks like something I would enjoy doing. It would be a great way to use the stack of notebooks I've accumulated and give some attention to pens that don't get used as often.

    Happy Fountain Pen Day!

    Well, I had totally forgotten about this. Until of course Fountain Pen Hospital sent a reminder ;). Yup, they have a sale going; no doubt many of the others do too.

    L'chaim!
