Inkhornism

IWhile Anne Lamott suggests writing a “sh*tty” first draft, I struggle with this task. If feels risky. What if I die before I have a chance to revise and remove the pedantic diatribes of my first draft? Will my headstone read “Master of Inkhornism?”

I say, write it all. Password protect. Hope to delete before you die.

  1. Hello from to A to Z. I liken those terrible first drafts to perfecting a piano song. You don’t get it right the first time you play (if the song is worthwhile), but with continued practice, eventually you’ll get there.
