pencils and first drafts

The February AW Blogchain was/is on the subject of "balance". Somewhere during reading
Miss Colby's post in the chain my mind churned up this:

On a new pencil, the lead side is 6 1/2 inches long. The eraser is only 1/4 inch.

Something about those numbers, I think, means that pencils were designed for first drafts.
