My attempt at a self portrait

Once upon a time

In a tiny tropical island lived a person called Wei. One day Wei stepped into a shop to buy some notebooks and the salesperson recommended some fountain pens to go with them. Wei didn’t buy any fountain pens that day but it made her curious. Do people still use fountain pens?

She googled and fell down a rabbit hole.

Fast forward a couple of months, Wei bought her first fountain pen. This is the fountain pen that is used in all the writing samples on this site.

  • First fountain pen bought on 15 May 2020.
  • Number of fountain pens in collection: 6
  • Number of inks written: 29
  • Favourite ink colour: Blue and blue-related
