Pen porn Fridays

Subtitled: Pens I would own if money were no object.

As ya’ll may or may not know, I write everything out by hand, first, before I type it up. I own five fountain pens that I cycle between. When I’m doing a lot of writing I tend to keep three filled. Right now, I’m not doing as much (I’m rewriting, which means more computer work) so I only have two filled.

I also have some goals for the year. I know myself, and I know my process. I work really well with bribes. So part of the pen porn Fridays are a way of teasing myself. If I actually finish writing the next novel by the end of the year, I may go ahead and purchase one of these pens. Which means I get to spend a year also looking and saving up (because they’re *expensive*. But so pretty!)

Today we have the geek pen. It’s by Cartier. The body and cap feature a circuit board design. I like the look of this pen, it looks sleek and clean and truly geeky. However, I would never buy a pen for looks alone — I’d also have to hold it and write with it, see how the tip flowed over paper. Still, it’s very pretty. Take a look here:

Cartier Pasha Circuit
Not sure what the material is, but the body is etched with what looks like a circuit board.

    • Yeah, it is. I don’t use it as often as I once did. It broke and I had to send it to France to be fixed. There’s a design flaw in the barrel — I’m sure it’ll break again — so I’m not using it as much. So I need a new really fancy pen that I’m not afraid will break. Right? *G*
