    Your first draft shouldn’t be perfect. When you go back and read it the next day, that’s when you make the changes. Sometimes even 3 or 4 revisions. The best route to take is to write it, self-edit, give it to a friend to look at and critique, get a teacher or adult to critique it, then go back and make necessary changes. Nobody’s essay is complete after the first draft.
