scratching a note

You may have noticed that I mention that I brought a pen set at Vincennes.
Today, I set on my deck and decided to see what writing was like back then.
Surprisingly, it was eazy:

I was expecting to have ink all over the place, which is why I went out side. I also discovered where term "scratching out a note" came form, as it was really more of a scratching motion compared to a modern pen.
It also came with a quill pen, I could not get any of the heads to fit it. A couple of minutes with some needle nose pliers fixed it:

Not bad , and worth the price. Now to go tame my muses
