Feature and Follow Friday: Writing

FF_2013Button-300x300Feature and Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. If you want to learn more about this meme please go to either of their blogs and get all the information.

Question of the Week: 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.

Well, I guess I am not real big on grand flowery writing as much as I am on enjoying the story line and characters. I hate getting bogged down in paragraph after paragraph of descriptive writing that I think is mainly filler as they are trying to get their word count. Some times even though it’s written really good can just slow down my reading and bore me even if it has good characters and story line.  I am reading to be entertained not to find out how great and eloquent a writer can be with words.

    I prefer great characters and plot with lousy writing over great writing with lousy characters.

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    I totally agree! That kind of writing usually has me zoning out and I find myself thinking about my own novel and where I want it to go. Then I realized I totally missed something in the book I was reading!

    Characters, plot, etc are definitely more important to me too!

    Here’s my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!
