How important is good writing to you? In an ideal world, a book would be beautifully written AND have great character development, plot, etc. But in the real world, which do you prefer: (1) Great Characters and plot with lousy writing or (2) Middling character development and plot but gorgeous writing?
Ooooohhhhhhhh.....This is a hard one. I seriously don't know how to answer this question.
but I think I'm going to have to go with.....option number....I DONT KNOW. why such a hard question?!....
ok, ok, *flails* option number 1...I think.
I think plot and character development are the most important things in a book for me.
because no matter how well it's written, if the content sucks, i'm going to feel dissatisfied at the end.
whereas if I see great plot and character, then I can chalk the writing up to inexperience or style or something.
But gosh, I'm such a sucker for prose too.... (I'm thinking of Shatter Me right now...)
