Why I love the internet
Because we can do these instead of these.
Remember whiteout, typewriters, erasable bond? And even further back into antiquity, remember carbons? (I have to say even I don't remember carbons too well, but I distinctly recall watching my mother type with them. She was a pro.)
Typing was hard, kids. And when you made a mistake, you swore and tore your hair out, cause it meant typing the whole page over. If you were anything like me, you'd come into your dorm at curfew (yeah, curfew--eleven PM on weekdays, twelve-thirty AM on weekends) sit down in that hard little wooden chair in front of your hard little wooden desk, pack of cigarettes by your side, favorite form of caffeine at the ready, and start typing.
Ten page assignment? Okay. Back to the wall, time running out, no outline and no plan, I'd sit down and type page after page, and when I'd reach that magic number ten, I'd simply stop. Finito.
