As much as I like the Undo feature on my computer, there is nothing I dislike more than physically having to erase something on paper. Although I don’t often find myself writing in pencil, I still have that same aversion today. I don’t know what it is… perhaps the mess of tiny shavings it leaves behind, or the fact that it doesn’t entirely remove the paper markings, or maybe it’s that attached erasers never last as long as the pencil itself. I wonder, though, do any of you still use pencils? If so, are you the type to erase OR do you prefer to tear the page out, crumble it and start over?
