Are you using suitable paper?
Do you fill the pen correctly, and with the proper kind of ink?
Do you cap the pen correctly after use?
Have you cleaned the pen lately?

There are a few different categories of problems you may have with you pen...

Skipping (point intermittently dries up and won't write)
Flooding (point consistently lays down too much ink)
Poor starting (pen won't write on the first few strokes)
Blotting (pen periodically lets out huge drops or blots of ink during writing)
Scratchy point (feels like you are scratching holes in the paper)
Needs to be refilled too frequently
Leaks into the cap (or elsewhere)
