I recall my colleague Kate Haigh talking about erasable pens but I never got round to buying my own. Then, recently, during a trip to the supermarket I came across Pilot's FriXion erasable rollerball pens, a set of three (one each of blue, black and red) for six quid. Perhaps you can get them cheaper elsewhere. I got mine from Tesco.

It's been a few months since I worked on paper but I'm really looking forward to working with these, particularly given the amount of money I spend on corrector pens/tape. Give 'em a try!
