    My favorite for taking notes and overall writing is the Precise V5 by Pilot. Comes in all colors besides black and blue which I use to distinguish main points or curious info.
    I love those for multi colored writing too.

    I also hate felt tips.

    I've been having a great time shopping for great deals on office/school supplies. I even found some great name brand highlighters at the dollar store. I also found a great storage clipboard at Sam's club. And I know it's not really the same thing but I love shopping for lunch boxes too. I found an adorable Owl lunch bag Target. School starts Monday, and I can hardly wait to use all my great finds.

    I love the Paper Mate Profile, Pilot Dr Grip Center of Gravity Ballpoint Pen, and the Zebra Original F.301 retractable fine ballpoint pen.

    I know! Most people prefer thin - but I have noticed those who prefer thin tend to have a light hand when it comes to writing. I press down pretty hard. And my penmanship is very "direct contact" style for whatever reason - I have also noticed those who prefer thin tend to have more of a "printing" style of writing...? Not sure if this would hold up as evidenced based though I hate felt tip pens the most!
    I have to have thin because I write extremely small. If I didnt have a thin pen, it would be a giant smudge all across my sheet

    Nothing wrong with a curvy pen. Geeeze even the pens need to be anorexic

    As long as it has a good grip to it, it will do just fine

    Yeah personally, I prefer a little girth!

    That's what I'm talkin' about - it has to be able to cope should I be more forceful than intended in my urgency to get the job done.

    pilot v5 or smaller if i can find it, because i write really small. they come in retractable versions and with pull-off covers.

    but my go-to pen for just about everything in my life is a gold cross fountain pen with the finest nib they make, a gift from my sweet husband when we wrote letters (actual letters, on paper, with stamps. imagine:heartbeat) when we were courting and living cross-country from each other, a mere twenty-five years ago. i cherish that box of all the letters we wrote to each other over that year and since-- i kept them all, and didn't my heart go pitta-pat when i learned he did, from the first one. someday my grandchildren will find them and marvel:heartbeat. there's just something about how a real nib molds itself to your handwriting that is so seductive.

    and because miss manners says a lady always uses blue-black ink, it was always easy to find my notes in the charts when i worked as an in-house case manager. the docs liked it too.
