Things I Did This Week:
Noodler’s Heart of Darkness Ink Review
Waterman Mysterious Blue Ink Review
I’ve been working on reviewing the October 2015 Ink Drop and I will have the rest of my reviews up this week for that! I have been trying out a different review format, and I really like how I am doing it. If you have any thoughts on what could be changed or what I could do better, just comment! I appreciate all of the feedback from my readers.
National Novel Writing Month is coming up, and I think I want to participate! Over the next week or so I’ll be planning that out and getting an outline started. I’ll be doing all 50,000 words by hand with my trusty fountain pens!
I have also updated the Pen People page with more blogs and more retailers you can check out.
If you have any requests for a pen or an ink review, just comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to get it up on The Southpaw Pen!
Thanks for reading everyone!

I really didn’t do a lot of reading on other things today – I’ve been focused on taking care of my boyfriend who has pneumonia and studying for some exams that are coming up.
This is a new segment I want to start called “Wednesday Words”. Basically taking a quote and doing some lettering and handwriting practice.
This week is a quote by the German philosopher, Friedrick Nietzche.

I don’t have a lot from this week because I’ve been studying for multiple exams this week. Hope you enjoy the reads!
Hey everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I’m going to have new ink reviews coming out tomorrow! I will be finishing out the bottles I have, and I will be starting on some of my samples. I will be using a Jinhao x450 with a medium nib for most of these. I’m using it as my dip pen/ink sampling pen and it’s been holding up quite well. I think the Jinhao is a good pen to do some of these ink reviews with because it is a pen that most everyone will have because its ‘economical’ pricing.
On top of that, it’s my 21st birthday today! I know that isn’t too exciting for most people (including me), but I’m glad it gave me the excuse to pick up some more pen related things. I think on my next order from Goulet Pens I will be picking a few maintenance things up for my pens. Definitely excited. I think on my list is the sample vial holder (finally!), bulb syringe, 5mL ink syringes, and a #6 fine nib for my other Jinhao pen I have.
Also, I think I’ll be coming out with some pen reviews soon! I want to review my TWSBI Eco, Pilot Metropolitan, and Noodler’s Ahab. I know all of these pens have been reviewed before, but I would like to get my opinion on these pens out there to everyone to help decide if a certain pen is for you.
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or requests don’t hesitate to comment here or email me at email@example.com.
Thanks for reading!
