A WRITER'S PROGRESS - LINDA MITCHELMORE
Now then, hands up all those who take their lovely computer/laptop/fancy gadget for granted? I know I do. But it got me thinking what a debt we owe to those who came before us in getting the thoughts in our heads down onto stone/skin/parchment/paper/into the ether for posterity. I'll begin with hieroglyphs. I can't begin to imagine the time it must have taken and how teeth-grindingly awful it must have been to make a mistake....I mean, how did they rectify errors - 'Cut another block of granite, Og, I've got to start this page again.'?
