"It’s just so easy to take things back..."

Lavinia Ludlow consents to TNBBC's "Would You Rather" interview. I particularly like this response.
Would you rather give up your computer or pens and paper?
Easy. Computer. I still draft everything with college rule lined paper and a mechanical accounting pencil. This makes for a nightmare when I have to transition everything to a word doc but I feel handwriting my drafts forces me to commit and worry about revisions later. It’s just so easy to take things back when they’re on a computer screen.
I'm the same way, though I use pen instead of pencil. I'm glad to realize that I use the manual process to "commit and worry about revisions later", and not just because I'm some sort of Luddite. My own Would You Rather interview should appear a few months from now.
