  1. I love fountain pens because as a writer, they make me concentrate on every word in a way that the computer doesn’t do. I feel like every word I put down is beautiful in its own right and scratching out a penned line is much more final than hitting the delete button, so I really consider what I write before I jot it down. I just got my first non-disposable in the mail today!

  2. Just started getting into fountain pens with a pilot metro and a platinum 3776, the feeling of writing with these instruments is phenomenal and I enjoy writing a lot more now.

  3. I like fountain pens because I like how they feel when I write with them. I need a new pen because I’ve only got one.

  4. The Brass FP is on my wishlist since last year. Thanks Frank and thanks Anna for this give away.

    Oh and I celebrate the Fountainpenday with my Lamy Safari collection and new ink.

  5. I love fountain pen because my handwriting looks so much better when i write with fountain pen, and it’s fun and easy to switch between colors.

  6. I enjoy the way ink flows out effortlessly so that I don’t have to exert a lot of pressure when writing. I can choose my ink (whether subtle or eye searing, waterproof or water resistant), and also get the nib modified if I so desire!

  7. I am trying to draw rainbows with black and expressive lines. The pen flexes and leaves an interesting arch shape. Bah! I might give in and add a little color. Happy Fountain Pen Day!

  8. I love fountain pens because of the incredible amount of different colors and shades of ink out there. I love how smooth they write, and are just incredibly cool looking. 🙂 It’s fun to change between pens, different styles, colors, etc.

  9. I enjoy the customization that you can do. Nib, ink, cartridge, converter etc. I’m always looking for the next great pen!

  10. I have never used a fountain pen but would like to do this. I have become intrigued with writing after a friend of mine began writing to me with a pen in the most beautiful colored inks.

  11. What I like about fountain pens is that you have to take your time: cleaning, maintenance, choosing the right ink, and finally putting your thoughts on paper. 🙂

  12. Wow! The Kaweco Brass is my next pen for my small Kaweco collection. I celebrated FPD by writing nonsense memos to myself using my currently inked pens. It’s a great way to relax and relieve stress. Besides, the more ink I use, the more ink I need to buy!

  13. On the off chance that you extend this due to stating the day/date incorrectly, I wanted to enter! Today is Sunday, the 8th.

    I love this brass pen! It’s gorgeous.

  14. I haven’t used a fountain pen since I was in high school, and I would love to have the feeling of writing with one again.

    This pen looks fabulous and it would be great to have it.

  15. I love fountain pens and have wanted this particular Kaweco for a while! Out of my budget, however. 🙁

  16. I have been on a bunch of websites already today trying to figure out what new fountain pen to purchase! PS I love your podcast.
