    I thought ‘Endoskeletal’ in the lastest issue of Black Static was tremendous – thanks for writing it.

  2. Matt Andrew says:

    Hello Sarah!

    I hope it’s okay to ask here, but I saw your review on the Pen Addict for the Kokuyo Soft Ring Notebook. I was wondering if you had any Iroshizuku inks and if so, did they play well with this Notebook? I have the Kokuyo Campus and noticed it doesn’t particularly care for Iro inks, unfortunately. Thank you in advance for the help! ❤

    • Hi Jessica! I just tested out some Iro ink (Ina Ho) on my Kokuyo notebook (in the soft ring, not a Campus, as I don’t have one on hand right now) and it did very well. I know a lot of notebook companies have paper that sometimes varies in quality. I wonder if the Campus uses different paper! I’ll have to pick one up soon and play. 🙂

    How do you edit your books if you write your rough draft in a notebook? I, too, would much rather write than type, but then do you use multiple notebooks until your final draft is done?

    As a fellow lover of fine fountain pens and paper, I enjoyed your brief Feedspot article, “The Downside of the Handwritten Novel.” Do you outline before handwriting your first drafts, and if so, do you use any software tools or is it also a pen-and-paper process? Also, what software and hardware tools do you use and enjoy using most after your handwritten draft? Again, thanks for the great article!

    Hi Sarah

    While I enjoy my fountain pens – if you are looking for a way to transcribe your handwriting then take a look at the Neo Smart Pen or the Wacom Bamboo Slate. Each solution allows you to have your handwriting transcribed where you can then save it as text or Word document. You can also try the Everlast Rocketbook’s which offer handwriting transcription

    Hope this helps
