So let me start off by introducing to everybody my plan. Me and my girlfriend have been dating for about three years now. Next year she will be starting medical school in a different town from me while I will be finishing getting my masters of accountancy. So with this being said, I plan on writing her when she goes to medical school. I saw an article about writing your significant other letters for a year and I wanted to take up the task, and also I have the thought of a proposal with the very last letter. However I need some advice as to where to begin.
Now I've written her letters before with standard printer paper, standard white envelope, and probably a BIC pen. However, I want to make these letters special. I was looking into getting a good pen, good paper, envelopes, and I would also like to use wax to seal the back.
To give a background on my writing. I have pretty terrible penmanship, so I need to hone my cursive before I start. With this being said, I think I would be looking for something with extra fine ink, so I can make it look not as messy. Also, in the past when I write, I tend to smear the ink as I continue writing (the outside of my hand drags the letters down the page) so i'm wanting an ink that would dry fast so this wouldn't happen.
I hope this all makes sense.
