1. The problems

First let's take a look at the problems we need to solve:
- Smudging and smearing when writing.
- Poor ink flow due to the pen inclination.
- Uncomfortable notebooks due to wire spirals.
- Cramps and hand fatigue from uncomfortable pens.

    2. The solutions

    Second, though it seems obvious it is really important to know what we need to look for so we can have a more pleasant writing experience.
    - Use ink that dries quickly, under 5 seconds is best.
    - Use a pen that writes smoothly or has an ergonomic left-handed grip.
    - Use notebooks that are not spiral or that have soft spirals.
