Pens...

In the past three weeks, I have had no fewer than three pens stop working on me! One of those was a rollerball that had just gotten a new filling (so it should still be full) and a rather pricey fineliner that we bought in Japan, in a tiny stationery-store in Hikone.
Why do my pens keep running out, while they still should be fine, ink-wise? What am I doing wrong? How can I prevent this?

It's seriously driving me crazy. Or maybe that's still the last of the jetlag. Or it's the Monster Cold that I got in the airplane -- sitting in an airtight cannister for ten hours means that contact with everyone else's germs is just about guaranteed. Anyway, it's bothering me.
