Nabokov, index cards and a sharp pencil

Dipping into my housemates "Penguin book of Interviews", I was reminded of the wonderful practical applications of index cards:

"His books are written on index cards so it is possible to start in the middle and insert scenes as he wants. He writes in a 3B pencil that he says he sharpens compulsively."
- from an interview with author Vladmir Nabokov
