If you want to know my film is called THE JUDGEMENT ROOM It’s near the middle of the video!
“Shitty First Drafts” by Anne Lamott has been my favorite essay so far. Her writing style is similar to mine, in the sense that it seems like she is talking directly to the reader. When I read her essay, it didn’t feel like I was reading an essay, rather she was having a one-way conversation with me. I’ve already posted a quote from her writing, but the key points and overall concepts I enjoyed and truly grasped to were the following:
”The very first thing I tell my new students on the first day of a workshop is that good writing is about telling the truth.”
First draft is the down draft… You just get it down.
Second draft is the up draft… You fix it up.
Third draft is the dental draft… You check every tooth.
“Quiet the voices in your head when you sit down to write a first draft.”
“Writing is the latch that keeps the door of the pen closed, keeps those crazy ravenous dogs contained.”
Similar to Lamott, I find it difficult to sit down and just start. It’s hard! I feel obligated to browse the internet, check texts and email, or simply stare at pictures taped to my wall. My mind tends to wander all over the place, hindering the process of writing the first sentence of the first draft. I love what Lamott had to say about quieting the voices. My mind will race itself, which can actually be somewhat of a catalyst for my writing process on many occasions. Although positive outcomes do sometimes come out of my inability to concentrate on what needs to get done, most daydreams are ineffective. Reading this essay has made me realize that I need to find a way to clear my head, just as Lamott does with her mice in a jar.
