Fountain Pen Day

I'm not sure who designated the first Friday in November as Fountain Pen Day, but I'm always glad to have something to celebrate--especially when it involves pens. So here's my top ten list of reasons to buy a fountain pen...or any pen that strikes your fancy and encourages you to write more.

10.    You can find a good pen in any price range.
  9.    No need to worry about buying the right size (but pay attention to pen circumference and hand size).
  8.    A good pen works for both genders.
  7.    A good pen will last forever...or almost.
  6.    There's a fine pen for every taste--conservative or flashy, monochromatic or colorful.
  5.    Most good pens come in their own little box, ready for wrapping.
  4.    Pens are both luxurious and functional.
  3.    If purchased from a reputable retailer, a pen can be returned or exchanged with no hassle.
  2.    A pen is personal without being too intimate, perfect for a special someone or a business associate.
