Since we already know that, I'm posting this more for the purpose of giving you a link to send to your students that shows them even the big guns struggle hard to turn out a polished draft. One quote offered up by our good buddy Raymond Ward at the (new) legal writer blog is from Ernest Hemingway who allegedly said "the first draft of anything is shit." Mr. Ward then provides a link to a blog called Writing, Clear and Simple which further expounds on the idea that first drafts always suck.
I am the scholarship dude.
