I agree with Albreda.
And the above comment reminded me that I was just noticing that every
period portrait of a writer I've ever seen, shows him or her (I was just
looking at Christine de Pisan yesterday) leaning his-or-her scraping pen on
the parchment (with two fingers over the top of it), just as you describe!
I always thought, "Wow, I didn't know they needed to correct so much!" but
now I understand why! Thanks!
