I used to write
With pen and paper…
On occasion I still do
But computers make
Editing so easy
It’s hard to justify
Doing things
The old way…
Until they crash
And what you wrote
Is lost forever…Hmmm…
Maybe time to reassess

    I hate to say this but I edit as I go along… And sometimes not at all.

      I do sometimes, but I’ve also edited right up to posting, and if I see an error, I go back and fix it…no major rewrites, mind you. :-}

    OMG! The true pain. I went on vacation this past summer while I attending online school. Along with not having WIFI to complete assignments on my laptop, the cell service was horrible. When I did find a good spot, I got on my phone to look for the template I made for the team assignment that included my portion of the work and it was gone.
