Blog Post 2 “Shitty First DraftS” (Devin O’Leary)

Posted on September 6, 2018

In the article, “Shitty First Drafts” by Lamott it says how even successful writers are just as troubled with their writing as regular writers. The article shows us all the even though these rich and successful people who make their living off of their words also face the same problems writing as we do. they do not wake up feeling amazing everyday and type away on their keyboard, we all face similar problems. The article also states how you shouldn’t get discouraged about how your writing is on the first draft. There will be mistakes and run-on sentences, so don’t worry about if your first draft is good or bad. No writer has ever made a perfect first draft. I think the most important thing to learn from this passage is that everyone even experienced and successful writers experience writers block and other troubles, so do not discouraged about not getting it the first time.
