I got my Fat Boy. It’s 176 of 500. I don’t really care that it’s a limited edition, all I care about is how it writes. Being the impatient person I am, I immediately inked it and gave it a quick test. The thickness of it feels very strange in my hand, but not bad. I believe it will take a little bit to get used to. I especially like the rubber rings on the body closest to the nib. I’ll really be able to test it tomorrow when I’m outside and it’s hot and I get sweaty hands. It puts out more ink than my Cross but less than the Lamy, but I won’t know if it’s going to be a problem until I really sit down and try to write.
Chapter 9 is moving along nicely and is nearly complete; I might even finish it tonight, but more than likely tomorrow morning. Chapter 10 puts me at about the half way point but I feel SO far from the halfway point for book one. I feel like I’m at the quarter point. The good news is that I figured out what happens after the end of book one. I mean I already knew, but now I KNOW.
Word of the day: neuralgia
