Quantity vs Quality — is one metric “Better” than the Other?
Back in the day, during my “formative college years”, I was given an assignment, that definitely changed the way I looked at the world ever since.
The lessons I learned in that Creative Writing class, I still carry with me, to this very day.
The assignment: Read the American Classic:
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, by Robert M. Pirsig
And then, Write an Essay on “What does it means to write a Quality Essay?”
(ie. Why is one Essay, better than another? … How can you tell?)
Is it the count of the words that matters … or their depth, when taken as a whole?
