Even Moses had trouble when he began writing The Book of Genesis. That is, according to Paul Laudiero's hilarious tumblr, 'Shit Rough Drafts.'

In his blog, Laudiero dreams up the first drafts of famous works of fiction from Moby-Dick to Fifty Shades of Grey and shows that even the best authors may have started with the worst ideas.

In his version of To Kill A Mockingbird, "Boo Radley" is short for "Boobies." Good thing Harper Lee decided to trash that one. With potty humor and bad jokes, Laudiero makes us feel that we are capable of the next great American novel. If only we can get past our shit rough drafts.

See some of the entertaining drafts:
