I think that through the use of computers drafts have become almost obsolete. Or maybe that's just the way I am. Back at school I didn't have a computer so I'd write up stories for my English class the old fashioned way. Now I only ever use pen and paper for shopping lists or leaving a note for someone at work - "Customer left this, bla bla bla." Before my computer, when I wrote something and wanted to change it that meant writing it again. That being a second draft. Then a third, etc. Since getting a computer though I don't really have many drafts of stories I've written. Every time I change something its just a case of going back through the text and deleting something or adding a word or two here and there. I can end up with a piece of writing where over half the text has been changed yet this is still, technically, the first draft. The original is completely gone. Lost for ever. I regret this. Sometimes because I may have stupidly, in a moment of frustration, deleted something worthwhile but other times because its nice to see how a piece of work I'm actually proud of has evolved. So am I the only one who is erasing the early history of their work or do others find themselves doing the same thing?
