Hi! My name is Hayley, and I’m your friendly introverted lefty fountain pen lover. I feel that there is a dearth of left-handed focused pen blogs, and I want to fill it. I’ve been into fountain pens for a little over a year now, and over that time I’ve tried a lot of different pens. I intend to cover a range of pens from beginner to gold nibs, as well as paper and ink. I may even review a few non-fountain pens and pencils. My writing style is hook handed, and I tend to hold the pen so that the front of the nib is parallel or nearly parallel to the writing line. However, I’ve been able to adapt to underwriting if I’m going slow and writing cursive. Since a good portion of the time my nib is nearly vertical to the page, I understand that the writing experience will be different for those of you that have a different wiring position. I believe that paper makes a difference, and I will include writing samples on different paper brands in my reviews. I really love fountain pens and writing instruments and want to provide a viewpoint for my fellow left-handers.
