Step One: Read the George R. R. Martin quote below:
“I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners. The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they’re going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there’s going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up. The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it. They kind of know what seed it is, they know if planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don’t know how many branches it’s going to have, they find out as it grows. And I’m much more a gardener than an architect.”
Step Two: Answer the following questions:
1. Which one are you, an architect or gardener? Why? How do you write that makes you one or the other? Alternatively, does a different comparison apply to you?
2. Finish this sentence (and follow up explaining why or how so): English classes have always
