Reading 1

  • How many drafts do you typically make of a paper/piece of writing?

I usually do one draft and then fix it so it makes sense.

  • Do you write a “down draft,” an “up draft,” and a “dental draft” like Lamott says?

I write one draft then I read it, fix it so it makes sense then I read it again and fix any mistakes.

  • Were you surprised at her chapter’s title?

I was a bit curious at her chapters title because most writers don’t use words like “shitty” for a title. It made me curious to know what the chapter was really going to be on and it ended up being exactly like the title says a “shitty first draft”.

  • Do you think you will have to change the way you write a lot if you decide to write a “shitty first draft”? I don’t think I have to change the way I write because I already make a first draft when I do essays or papers, I just edit the first draft until it makes sense.
