Which is more important to a writer: native ability or training?
Consider the following fictional scenarios:
Scenario A–In this scenario is an individual who is very talented with words with a tremendous vocabulary and perfect spelling, but who has never had a formal English class.

In your opinion, which of the preceding individuals would make the better writer (and why)?
