Last night was the first Write Time of 2013, and in our usual fashion we ran a little over our normal goal of an hour broadcast ;) But that’s okay! We were on a roll. We covered a whole variety of topics, including:

  • What we have been up to over the last month while not doing Write Time (spoiler alert, we’ve been busy!) (0:52)
  • We bought a second, yes, a second gold Pontiak Aztek…we now have a pair ;)
  • Pilot Iroshizuku inks, Ama-Iro, Shin-Kai, Take-Sumi, to arrive today! These inks will complete the Iroshizuku line at 24 inks total (8:40)
  • Diamine Music Set, pack of 10 unique inks named after composers to arrive sometime soon. We were originally told the set was going to be limited and heard back the morning after this broadcast that they in fact will be regularly available (15:20)
  • TWSBI 580’s, hopefully to arrive the end of January with Jowo nibs (19:00)
  • Noodler’s Ripple Ebonite Konrad pens, coming next week (maybe the week after) but in very good supply! (22:25)
  • New Rhodia/Clairefontaine products coming very soon (37:30)
  • Our thoughts and goals for 2013 on (47:10)

We have a lot of different things we’re looking to pursue in 2013, and we have to focus our efforts on the things that are most in demand and most achievable to us given our current resources of time, money, and talent. One this is for sure, as much as we’ve improved our website and tried to improve the overall writing experience, we will continue to do so with passion and vigor. If you have any ideas of things you’d like to see us do or resources that you know that would help us to achieve our goals, do let us know in the comments!

Thanks to everyone who joined us live, it was a nice broadcast and we’re glad to be back. We’ll see you next week for another Write Time at 9 ;)

Write On,
Brian Goulet
