This week's question...
What’s more important: Good writing? Or a good story?
(Of course, a book should have BOTH, but…)
This is a hard one because both go hand in hand. I really don't see how you can have one without the other. There could be great writing but if the story bores me, I won't bother with it. OTOH, if it's a good story but the writing is poor, I won't bother either. Poor writing is distracting (bad grammar, using the wrong names or tenses, misspelled words)can annoy me through the entire book.
If I had to choose one over the other, I guess I'd say good writing is more important but honestly I feel this is one of those Catch 22 questions and you really need both to make a good book.
