Tracey’s Initial Post: In Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott, did she convince you of the importance of writing in drafts and revising for the final paper? Explain why or why not.
Anne Lamott details the struggles authors go through as they write their stories, in “Bird by Bird”, she examines the process that her and her friends go through to create their final drafts. Anne’s passion and infatuation with writing was inspiring and comical when she said “I know some very great writers, writers you love who write beautifully and have made a great deal of money, and not one of them sits down routinely feeling wildly enthusiastic and confident. Not one of them writes elegant first drafts. All right, one of them does, but we do not like her very much. We do not think that she has a rich inner life or that God likes her or can even stand her. (Although when I mentioned this to my priest friend Tom, he said you can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.)” (Lamott, 2005)
This piece of writing does convince me that writing multiple drafts of papers is a good idea so the problems in the paper can be addressed and rewritten as necessary. My writing style is like developing drafts, but it is slightly different in that I will begin to write a piece then revisit it several times without the work being completed until the due date. Ultimately, I should complete a piece and then revisit it, as Anne says that most authors do, but I do not have the attention span for write that way (if that makes sense!). A close friend of mine from Delaware is an author and frequently tells me about her struggles with writing her books. We recently have discussed writing outlines and how she thinks they are important while I find them confusing. However, I understand how necessary they would be if someone was writing multiple books, because without one the author may get confused on which character is which. In my opinion this excerpt from Anne Lamott’s excerpt on “Shitty First Drafts” did illuminate the importance of developing writing through multiple drafts, and I will be more conscious about these steps in the future.
