Default Writing on Blank Munchkin Cards

I got Blank Munchkin Cards so people that play with me can make their own cards as an incentive to play more. I'm just wondering what would be the best way to write on the cards. Are there any specific kind of pens that work well on the cards? I wanna try writing as small yet clear as possible so to fit all info on it. So any tips from you all are very welcome.

I would love to give you good advice, but my writing is left-handed and stick art, so I'll do you the favor of NOT drawing you much here.

Generally, those, if you're writing blank games for your group, start by writing games about your players and friends -- it's always funnier when someone gets to fight against one of their own cards and ends up having to Run Away, or landing a Curse card. Don't be TOO awful and everyone has fun, even when they're the one being suffered.

Ummm, I was more wanting to know what kind of pens to use for writing on the cards. I tried one style of pen that had multiple colors and found that the ink color lightened to about 25% of what it was and was very hard to read. So I was looking for suggestions about pens that work well when writing on the cards.

Sharpies or something of a similar marker has always worked for me.

If you use a sharpie, be sure not to touch it, or drag your hand across it while the ink dries. Seriously. Let it set for a while. I have had success with just a regular ball point pen, but again you need to let the ink dry.
In fact, the best advice is just let (whatever you use) dry.
If you have copic markers and skill, use those, but again the waxy surface will smudge horribly if you don't let it dry.
