I love writing with Parker fountain pens!
But I do all my writing these days at the computer using word; still prefer that fountain pen though, but I'd hate having to then type it all out.
All hail Parker fountain pens! I love them immensely.
Although... It is rather
time-consuming to write by longhand, but on the other hand: Editing is so much easier, because when I write by longhand I actually have to think before I write
(...a skill that I am apparently unable to master in front of a computer, because when if I type I tend to end up with around 20000 words with no plot
and random characters with strange motives and I get frustrated beyond what could possibly be healthy! One word for that: Gah!).
So, no. Fountain pens and real paper work fine (and I never run out of batteries either!) For me it feels natural and I do not really mind that it takes longer time
(although, having said that, I do write mostly short stories...)
