vomit draft
 n.— «And you can join them—even if your grammar grates and your spelling stinks. Your only goal is to finish what’s fondly called the “vomit draft.” Be assured that much of your novel will reek. But just as a slimy oyster shelters a shimmering pearl, so your story will harbor its own gem.» —“A novel idea” by Lois Corcoran Daily Press (Escanaba, Michigan) Oct. 26, 2006.
