Richard, my dear friend, you are a gentleman, all class, and the Pelikan M800 in the green and black will fit your hand perfectly. Indeed, the Pelikan M800 has your name written on it.

Yes, when Will's Music is published soon, I will drop you a note, as well as make the announcement here on the forum. For more information on the book, and on my book of humor Obie's Opus, check out my website: obieyadgar.com

Stay well, my friend, and think Pelikan.


Right you are, Kav: How are future writers going to donate an old laptop? The great writers and composers wrote letters.

Volumes. In long hand. At one occasion, the great composer Mendelssohn wrote 27 detailed letters in one day — with a quill. Imagine that. Many such letters are preserved in volumes by other writers.

What will be left by today's standards, volumes of e-mails? OY! Where's my Pelikan?

I grew up with fountain pens, and have used them throughout my professional career, and still use them. The first draft of my novels, short stories and essays is always written in fountain pen and then transferred onto the laptop. My small collection includes: Montablanc, Waterman, two Parkers and Pelikan 120, 400 and now the M800. Life is beautiful, indeed.

Beautiful instrument.

I primarily use the fountain pen, but I also have matching large and small ballpoint pens, a pencil, a rollerball, and even a highlighter. They still function perfectly after all these years. I used to have a friend who was a collector, and I could always tell what kink of mood he was in by the pen he had in his pocket. Good luck with the book. I'm on the list for Will's Music.

that's interesting, and i think it possible to understand what mood the writer was in at the time of writing, based on the physical appearance of the text.

AAARRRGG!!!! Handwriting analysisAngry I lost several employment opportunities over this moral equivalent to prenology.When I get mad my writing becomes slow and
measured enough to send the reader scurrying for the
Oxford Dictionary.

no no, my friend - in this case it's not about analysis - it's about immediate and direct poetry among close friends, where one deliberately opens ones heart Heart
