I agree with the good writing part too. It's what draws the readers in. :)
I like a good story, but sometimes really bad writing can drown out that story.
Good writing, particularly if it's a unique character voice, can sustain many books that are less action-oriented. But yes, both are needed!!
I want both but, if I had to pick, I think I'd take a good story.
I agree...I want both!
Both both both! *sigh* Hard choices this week. I end up with good writing. Have a great weekend ahead.
Hello! Thanks for the visit to my blog!You're right. Of course a lacklustre plot is always a let-down but repulsive language and sloppy writing I just cannot take.
Hello. I do agree that both are important but I'd choose good writing as well. There was a BTT I read and the blogger said something about how a writer weaves words. :)
