Blog #2 First drafts are shitty

Posted on September 11, 2018

On the topic of shitty first drafts I agree with the with the author that the first draft should be able to serve not as a polished piece pice if work but a messed up place where fixing and new ideas is suppose to come from. I think people get too wrapped up in the idea that the first draft has to be perfect even though a first draft should be a place where ideas first get tested and are written out in an essay format to see whether the initial idea worked or to see how it would work in an essay. First drafts should be shitty. However this doesn’t mean to write absolute nonsense in the essay since the shitty first draft is supposed to help you get ideas flowing through your mind and maybe spark new ideas about the topic people may want to write about.
