Read “Shitty First Drafts and Perfectionism” in this week’s readings then answering all of the following in a post of 250 or more words.
Who is Anne Lamott? Be specific about her credentials and background, as if you were formally introducing her to an audience, which is an important literate practice in academics. Research to find information.
How does Lamott understand her own drafting process? How does this compare to how you previously believed professional writers went about their work?
Share two or three specific strategies, attitudes, or moves Lamott mentions in the essay that really stood out to you. Why did these things stand out? How would you respond to these ideas?
How do you see these strategies, attitudes, or moves being useful in your own writing process, particularly writing a first draft?
Be sure to include a word count at the bottom of the post.
