I know from experience that one can lay down many thousands of words with fountain pen. However, editing and revisions are a hard slog. Nowhere near as fast as with computer or even typewriter.

There were very prolific writers back when a dip was *the* writing technology.

How’d they do it? Their lifespans were shorter yet their production of significant works was equal or greater than today’s writers.

Very curious if anyone can shed light on this idea. Thank you!
