What your boss did to you is certainly dastardly. In 11 years of tech
writing, I've never had anyone grab a draft off my desk. You should start
hiding your drafts, and look for work elsewhere, I'd say!

You asked about the number of drafts we produce. That always depends on the
project, and the people involved. _Rough_ drafts? Either none, or just one.
Depends on the project's complexity and the solidity of the info I'm given.
And I almost always edit my work at work, not home.
