Hey there fountain pen friends! November 1st ushers in a new month that includes daylight savings, Thanksgiving, and a ton of fantastic programs for the fountain pen enthusiast. It’s the beginning of NaNoWriMo, Fountain Pen Day is on the 6th, and here at Goulet we have some really fun things planned. November is the perfect month to celebrate writing!
NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. It’s a challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel in the month of November. We did a whole blog on the best fountain pens, paper, and ink to use if you decide to do complete this work by hand. Whether or not you are handwriting your book, using your computer, or a typewriter, this is a fantastic challenge to get you writing!
Fountain Pen Day
Fountain Pen Day takes place the first Friday in November. It started in 2012 and is celebrated by enthusiasts worldwide as a time to embrace, promote, and share the use of fountain pens. We have some good stuff in the works for this, so stay tuned.
Free Monteverde Ink!
During November and December we’ll be giving you a free bottle of Monteverde ink with the purchase of a Monteverde pen that accepts bottled ink. You even get to pick which color you’d like! Monteverde Green is particularly nice… you can read a review of it here.
Shhh… It’s a secret!
Maybe you’ve participated in our November giveaway before? We’ll be announcing all the details on the best giveaway in November this Sunday. We’re rearranging some of our weekly blogs to make room for this contest but don’t worry- they’ll be back in December. We think you’re really going to love what we have planned.
