(1) you do not need a grille. What you do is take, say,
    20 numbers, like this: 7, 3, 2, 4, 5...

    Which give you the number of nulls you write: 7 nulls,
    one true letter, 3 nulls, one true letter, 2 nulls, and
    so on. Look: no grille!

(2) you cannot use a grille to decrypt your text, because,
    as you said, you wrote a draft first (using a grille)
    then copied it with the lines sagging right. Result:
    apply your original grille onto that and what do you
    get? Gibberish, because the positions of the "true" 
    letters no longer match the positions of the holes 
    of the grille.
