Anne Lamott is famous in writing circles for her advice on the virtues of bad first drafts.

Bad first drafts, she says, are really a good thing, because they’re honest. By getting the raw words on a page, before an editor touches them, you capture the essence of the story.

As I stand in my kitchen writing this, I can’t help but think that life is no different.

There’s no editor. No re-dos. It’s all one big first draft.

Which is what makes it so real and fresh and exciting.

And, for me, that’s something I’m thankful for.
