I was watching some writing lecture videos today and found these Brandon Sanderson lecture bits. I watched about 5 of them, and I like them very much.
The one below is about gardeners and architects. Basically, if you outline your story in advance like I do, you’re an architect. If you prefer to start writing without a plan, you’re a gardener.
Sanderson does a good job of describing the difference between them and the drawbacks of each approach. Personally, I plan to remain an architect, but to each his/her own.
