Manuscript Paper

Does anyone here use げん稿こうよう for writing?

I found some at a bookstore, and it reminds me of the writing booklets used for exams at my university.

This two-minute YouTube video has the basic rules of formatting for writing vertical Japanese text on manuscript paper.

No, though if I wasn’t too lazy to ink up my fountain pens I’d probably order some. I do love my 52 gsm Tomoe River paper, though it’s blank. I just can’t get over how such a thin and translucent sheet resists bleedthrough and feathering so well.
