Today's Question: What’s more important: Good writing? Or a good story? (Of course, a book should have BOTH, but…)
If I absolutely had to pick one, I think I'd pick a good story. After all, you can say something beautifully, but what really matters is WHAT you said, not how you said it.
I do appreciate great writing and sometimes I read well written books that I didn't enjoy all that much because I didn't enjoy the story. I probably forgive bad writing more than I do a bad story.
