I don’t really have a set amount of drafts that I write. Usually I do 2-3 drafts, but it depends on whether I’m submitting it for a grade or not. When I write personal pieces I leave them as drafts to retain a more accurate self portrait of my mind. With actual assignments I usually have 3 drafts, just like Lamott. Her title and writing felt very relatable, because it always frustrated me when my first drafts would always end up being heavily revised despite the amount of time and effort I’d put in. Lately though, I’ve started loving my shitty first drafts. They’re fun to write and definitely don’t cramp my style.
