WHAT: First draft of “The Blue Room.”

HOW MUCH: Six manuscript pages.

HOW LONG: 35 min.

This is, and I note it mainly for my own amusement, the first day of writing with an old Sheaffer cartridge pen brought specifically for the task rather than the current desk pen.  Apart from being slightly worried about running out of desk pen ink (the current bottle, from April of last year, is getting rather low), it’s nice to reconnect with my first real writing tool for this exercise.

Today’s Pen: Parker 50
Today’s ink: Quink black (a bottle from the ’70s or ’80s, containing Solv-X; it certainly has no flow issues, as the new stuff is accused of)
