Does anyone besides me ever write drafts, before the final poem is complete?

    I just type away. I never look until what I want to say is complete. THEN I go back and fix spellings and tidy up my stanzas.

    I think we all find things we have missed. Often they skip my attention until posted, but then I go back and fix them up.

    I have a very wierd draft system. Some how I can edit poems in my head before I write them out. On the other hand, I've done about eight different drafts for poems. I almost always do some sort of revision to my works though.
