I wrote my first poem at age 14 with a cartridge pen. It was a love poem and the start of a lifelong love affair with ink pens and poetry. I wrote for 20 years with Schaefer Cartridge Pens (still available at Hobby Lobby). They're the pens on the right. My best poems were written with the red one in blue ink. Then I discovered German made Pelikan Fountain Pens. (On the left.) They're the best pen I've ever used. The green Pelikan pen is a wide nib highlighter. I highlight in advance reader copies of books that I get from Amazon and authors to review. It's a blast to use. I'm glad I saved and splurged on the Pelikan pens. I plan to pass them down to my grandchildren.
