Everyone has a story.
One of the many powerful experiences in life is to tell a story. A story entices and mystifies, a story informs and explains and a story develops and destroys. A story is the greatest form of communication. Throughout history we have been able to develop, as a species, utilising the power of story-telling. There is one thing that defines a story and the legacy it holds: how it is told. The greatest story can be ruined by a poor delivery, while a bland story told with zest and power can develop followers and gain a reputation. This is where a beautiful fountain pen must be utilised.
Writing is delivering your essence and being onto a page through a weave of letters, sentences and paragraph, each written by your own hand. To convey the best illustration through words, however, it is imperative to choose an instrument that so delicately, yet with such fervour, delivers ink onto the page.
A fountain pen isn’t just a tool, a fountain pen tells a story. A fountain pen delivers countless words before you’ve made a single mark on the page. As such your pen and writing speak many words before you do. This is why it is essential to have an instrument that matches the light within your soul. Whether you prefer to tell a story through an elegant Montblanc Starwalker or through a modest Faber Castell Loom, the weight in your hand speaks volume about your character.
Why do you write with a fountain pen?
Who do you want to be seen as?
Who do you want to be written as?
How do you want to tell your story?
Therefore, you must choose a pen that matches your own tenacity. Each person is different and no two fountain pens tell the same story. Remember, one of the most powerful experiences in life is to tell a story.
Oh yeah, and they make you feel cool.
