ARTS: Neil Gaiman on getting hooked on handwriting – Tulsa World: ARTS.

Over the past few months I’ve gotten two beautiful fountain pens: One for Christmas and one as a “Thank You” for a favor done. I bought myself a nice case for the two of them and they live in my bag, for use when I need to sign things.

I also have a preponderance of journals and notebooks. I wonder if I should try this? It’d be an interesting experiment for sure. That said, my handwriting generally sucks. And when I had to take the GRE test the hardest thing to do was copy something out by hand.

But still… getting back to the old ways, at least for some things, might not be a bad way to go.

As someone who has written longhand (and not really that keen on it) I appreciated this look at how writers write – the actual physical process itself. Especially since I’ve just jumped on the Scrivener bandwagon.

That all said, the Levenger catalog still qualifies as writer porn and if you find yourself in Vegas, there’s a pen shop over at the Wynn with pens only about half the writers in this list could afford.
