Another Proper Gift for Jane

Jane Austen wrote on paper with ink and quill I suppose. I think she’d love this:

Lots of writerly goodies at Levenger.com

I want one. Or two.

What would you give Jane if she were with us?

    In high school (when I had allowance money to spend), I loved using the Scheaffer Skrip fountain pen, the kind with ink cartridges. I am not good at calligraphy, but a nice pen is a joy to use. Good choice!

      I had one too. I keep buying fountain pens hoping one day to write well enough to justify the purchase. I’m probably too old for that now.

        Never too old for something beautiful! Anything that brings enjoyment to the writing process is worth it.

        Lately I’ve been doing more work longhand. My former students, now at university (including my son, Nathan) swear by taking notes in cursive over typing. They all say the same thing: what we type we don’t remember. Weird, but true. I can use all the thinking help I can get!

    I’m the odd man out here. I don’t enjoy writing by hand any more. It takes too long, and I don’t think my handwriting is “pretty.” Even so, I’m helping Mel with her “Save the Dates,” so I could use a lovely pen set.

      Make no mistake, Robin, I don’t enjoy writing by hand. I have to in church as I have no keyboard. I love nice paper and love pens, but use them for writing? Not unless I absolutely have to.

Why yes, we DO want a piece of your mind. ;-)
