Hey, fountain (and other) pen and paper enthusiasts! We donโ€™t have a Discover emoji tag feed for you folks yet, but I know there are quite a few of you. Roll call? Iโ€™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. Iโ€™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.

@jean I am! Use a paper planner (Filofax) and journal, am a pen geek and especially love fountain pens!

Would love an emoji feed for this!

@kirschen love my Kurutoga pencil. Itโ€™s just so perfect that you can sharpen the lead.

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

@patrickrhone ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I pared back to 8 pens, after buying 40-ish and hovering around 15-20 for awhile.

@jean My only pen right now is a Lamy Safari with a cursive italic nib, but Iโ€™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...

... otherwise known as clearance from my wife. ๐Ÿ˜‚

@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 Iโ€™m in Canada which has draconian import limits and duty charges. If it wasnโ€™t for this Iโ€™d be all over that! Now that you mention it though Iโ€™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. ๐Ÿ˜’

@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 suckโ€ฆ 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ neeeeed a Discover emoji tag now, we're a legion!
