    One thought: in the days of typewritten, white-outed, etc. composition, I
    think there was much less chance of capturing stages of composition,
    because we were much more likely to cogitate more or scribble on little
    scraps of paper before committing to the recalcitrant medium, and make
    fewer revisions afterward. I think I remember that freewriting as a
    composition method was either invented or really took off with word processing?
