Purchasing a Parker IM rollerball pen has worked out well. The basic Parker IM rollerball pen with a medium blue ink refill has met my expectations. I switched to completely using two different Parker IM pens and put all of my other writing apparatuses away. Apparently, I now want to acquire a Parker medium nib fountain pen. To the best of my knowledge, I have never owned a fountain pen before. This new interest in fountain pens is pretty much out of nowhere. Those pens are primarily used to capture thoughts for later review in a large blank Moleskine Art Plus Sketchbook (5 x 8.25). The previous Moleskine sketchbooks I have owned had a better quality paper. The one I got this year had a thinner and slightly more yellow paper.
