BTT ~ Writing Or Riveting?

What’s more important: Good writing? Or a good story?

(Of course, a book should have BOTH, but…)

 

Hum . . . I’d have to say, if I can only pick one, ‘a good story.’

For me, no matter how great the writing is, if the story just isn’t there then I won’t enjoy it. Having said that, I can only take so much so-so or ‘eh writing, and flat out bad writing, no matter the story, destroys the ability to be drawn into the story so . . .

How the author manages to seduce your mind is important but without a good story behind the words it leaves you empty and feeling cheated. Just my 2¢ Winking smile
