First Draft

Around here, everything is a first draft.  Sometimes people take a prompt from here to their own blog and finish it, polish it, turn it into a final draft. That’s a thrill for me. A first draft is a necessary evil, you can’t get anywhere without one. So start writing.

  1. The first draft is the beginning of creativity, greatness, and productivity. Creative juices must flow prior to writing, and writing is great and productive any time. Because a lot of personality is displayed, writing is great. It becomes productive when a product is developed. The first draft is the product.

  2. I just finished the first draft of a story, which commemorates the memory of my Rottweiler, Conan, who passed away five years ago. I must admit that, to this day, I still greet his picture on my night table every morning when I wake up. He was truly an amazing dog.

  3. The first draft is the purest form of writing. It is that very moment when the mind opens up one of its neural flood gates and releases thoughts, that have been timelessly preserved, down our nerve ways to our fingers to produce a spiritual outpouring of life. A virtual raw rendition of expression.
