19 Drafts

Even the very best and published writers think, write, rethink, correct, and write some more before arriving at a final draft.  Check out the many drafts of  Donald Hall's poem, Ox Cart Man!  What a fabulous thing to show students and reinforce the idea that writing is a process that takes time and thought!

What's the most number of drafts you've taken a piece of writing through before it was ready to publish?  Do you share your work (process) with students?
