Q: Which do you prefer: (1) Great characters and plot with lousy writing or (2) Middling character development and plot but gorgeous writing?

Hard to imagine a published book with lousy writing. Before it can hit the printer, a critique partner goes through it, followed by an agent, then an editor... Can so many people produce lousy writing?


Usually when that happens the characters are filled with potential, not greatness.

My answer: neither. A great author has his/her thinking cap on, and should produce the best of both worlds.


  1. Woo hoo, you go girl! Great reasoning behind your answer! If I absolutely had to choose, I'd go for better characters. If I don't like at least one character, then I can't make it through.
