I read a forward by Piers Anthony in the midst of his bestselling Incarnations series about how he used two drafts on paper then one on the typewriter and shebang. He admits to switching to a laptop by the midnineties.
I think 1995 was the last time I did any kind of significant chunk of fiction on paper. Using a computer allows me to get a lot of words down, and it's easier to not forget what I want to say; however, I struggle with endless revisions.
It almost seems like, if I put more effort in and slowed down the first time, then it would save hundreds of hours of edits downstream. Assuming the dog doesn't eat it.
1) Is there anyone out there who does their rough draft on paper (specifically because they feel it is time saving in the long run)?
2) Is there something practical (other than pay someone to edit work) to cut oneself off in the revision process?
