First drafts

I wonder if the rise of word processing, and blogs!, we will have fewer of these artifacts for future generations? I hasten to note that having a scribbled piece of paper, or having multiple file versions on your hard drive or however you edit, makes no difference to the final product. Great writers will produce great work, no matter what method they use to get to the final result.

Still it is neat to see all the almost OCD scribbling over the pages.
