Why Don't YOU Go Write A Bestselling Novel? I thought that was pretty stupid actually, and I do love to laugh at certain things at Twilights expense (Team Khaki!) but that wasn’t funny, it was the same old “oh your prose is too PURPLE!” argument people have against the writing.

Maybe you’re just adventurous and you want to try your hand at calligraphy (or you might, once your handwriting improves). Good for you! A fountain pen may make your writing look a bit better, but if your writing looks as if frenzied chickens got loose on the page, chances are this won’t be enough. Most likely, you’ll need to retrain your arm and hand.
