If there ever was such a myth, it's a stupid one. People always needed to describe/explain things. The way they did is not necessarily the way we'd do it today, they are early forms of tech writing. We can even define the ten commandments as a numbered list for how to conduct your life.

I definitely remember tech writers using pencil and paper and real cut and paste.

Dated 1908?

Another nail in the coffin of the myth that tech writing started with the computer age.
