What’s more important: Good writing? Or a good story?
(Of course, a book should have BOTH, but…)
I think that although both are important to a good story, i would say the writing is more important. I don’t think i can actually read a book where the writing is bad, for example if the writing is to complicated or if it uses 4 sentences where one would have done.
A good story is important too because if it doesn’t keep me interested I’m not going to want to pick up the book.
One point i will make is i download a lot of Kindle freebies and the writing on some of them is awful, spelling mistakes and bad grammar. If a book is like this, i wont read it and delete it off my kindle.
