Hey, fountain (and other) pen and paper enthusiasts! We don’t have a Discover emoji tag feed for you folks yet, but I know there are quite a few of you. Roll call? I’d like to keep a list. There are new microbloggers joining us right now who are interested.

@jean I use fountain pens, inks, and selected (code for picky?) notebooks on a daily basis.

@jean hi Jean. I’m not into fountain pens, but I love archival ink black pens. I use them for doodles, bullet journaling, and Sketchnotes. Does that fit your use case?

@cm Anybody who is picky about a writing instrument, or ink, or paper counts 100%. If there is intention, you're a stationery guy.

@jean Yes: Notebooks, mostly Leuchtturn. A German pen called a Schneider (only becasue it's named after me.) Mostly pencils, though. Staedtler, Tombow Mono100, Mitsu-Bishi Hi Uni.

@kirschen love my Kurutoga pencil. It’s just so perfect that you can sharpen the lead.

@Pilchuck Yeah. You just need one pen. The one that's right for you.

@jean My only pen right now is a Lamy Safari with a cursive italic nib, but I’m eyeing up the Lamy 2000 as my grail pen. I just have to work up the courage to submit an equipment upgrade request to the management...

@jean you can add me to the pen and paper lovers list and I have the ink on my fingers to prove it.

@jean Count me among that number. Notebooks, pens, and pencils. Have been known to buy individual sheets of manuscript paper from a charity/thrift shop because of their layout.

@pimoore I'm not certain where you're located, but Pen Chalet sometimes has Lamy 2000's show up on their Final Drop page (aka open box returns) at a pretty significant discount. I actually acquired mine there earlier this year.

@dgreene196 thanks Devon, unfortunately I’m in Canada which has draconian import limits and duty charges. If it wasn’t for this I’d be all over that! Now that you mention it though I’m going to peek around and see if I can find any Canadian based deals out there.

@kitt Yes! Very impressive.

I wish I qualified for this tribe. I have hand tremors, a medication side effect, that have made handwriting kinda stressful. πŸ˜’

@jean Count me in. A few months ago i replaced my online calendar with a paper planner/diary. Very happy with the change. I'd correspond with friends by letter/postcard if there were enough other people writing letters/postcards. I don't care much about pens, probably like a Pilot V5 best. (Anne Tyler says she uses those to write all her novels, but so far they haven't made me more creative as far as I can tell).

@jean I am shifting from digital toward analog systems, that is paper notebooks with pencils and pens. I would certainly be interested in anything written about such topics. A special emoji or icon would be a very helpful tool for finding them here. I have a favorite stationery store in Thailand where I always head for the notebooks, pens & pencils inventory, always so fascinating.

@jean tremors suck… I don't think you would not be qualified for this tribe, anyway, I think it's about passion, not necessarily the most perfect writing! But oh, count me in as a pen and ink enthusiast πŸ˜€ neeeeed a Discover emoji tag now, we're a legion!
