Product Description
This creative writing activity is designed to get creative writing students thinking about what the best way to approach writing for them is.

George R.R. Martin posed the idea that writers are either gardeners or architects--they either write freely and let the ideas flow or they plan meticulously ahead of time each thing that will happen. This presentation explains the two different approaches to writing, including pros and cons, and the activity poses two prompts, one that calls for being a gardener and one that causes them to think like an architect.

This lesson is less about the standards and more about students reflecting on their preferred writing style and trying out different approaches to creative writing.

Materials include 1 presentation and 1 Architect Brainstorming/Outlining Worksheet, both of which are editable. Teaching time may vary considerably depending on how long you allow your students to complete the worksheet and answer the prompts.
