Manuscripts for the short story: Angel in the Library

Whatever the format or length, Jan wrote three drafts of everything: the first always in longhand, the second and third typed. Here are manuscript pages from the short story ‘Angel in the Library’. Jan noted that for her, a page of handwriting always equated with a typed page: 400 words. Note the way she added a word count tally in the margin of the handwritten page. Below is how the story appeared when published in the TES in December 2002. To read the text of the story in full, please click here.
