Field Notes 56 week planner

2022-09-15 00:00

I have at various times tried to use paper planners as my only calendar. That have never really worked out, and I have in time found a place for them that works for me.

Anyways. The first time I tried this it was the Hobonichi Techo, the second time I used this. It lasted for like 3 or 4 months. It is a solid planner, if you can deal with the Field Notes paper.

One thing I always like in a planner is a two page week spread. And the Field Notes 56 week planner had a interesting take on it. Not the one that have worked the best for me, but interesting non the less. They split the page into 6, and the last of the 5 into two, leaving a large section for the week days and two smaller for Saturday and Sunday.

This is one of the fem less expensive fountain pens I for some reason never have bought.

I don't know why, but I just never did. So I ordered a red one with a EF nib a while back.

When it showed up I really liked the packaging. It came in this cardboard box that just large enough to fit the pen. The first thing I did was to eye dropper it with red ink.

It is a very small pen when you don't post the cap, and more or less like a regular pen otherwise. Apparently it is common with bad nibs with these pens, I got a good one. And I like it a lot. I suspect I'll end up with a few of them.

As I'm writing this I just recently started to move more into pens with finer nibs; both gel and fountain. And that might change my pencil preferences moving forward.

Historically the Pearl have been the one I like the most. Partly because it is the best looking of the regular versions. And I liked that I could sharpen a lot while using it. But now that I've started to like the scratchy pens and such I might be more into the hardest Blackwing aka the Natural. Or I might even be more into even harder pencils like the Golden Bear.

Weird.

Weird that it have been one year already.

In general I'm very happy about how things have gone. The post schedule I landed on have worked very well and is sustainable. It haven't been a problem do get enough posts done in batches to keep up with the two posts a week.

For the next year I think I want to look more into doing more recurring posts especially surrounding the tools I use. And I would also love to shorten the time between writing and publishing.

Outside of that I might also look more into some kind of link dump thing. But I'm not sure about that one.
