What's more important: Good writing? Or a good story?
I couldn't decide on which is more important, so I'm gonna have to say both. I believe a great book must have the combination of both elements; good story to keep the readers glued to be book and a flawless writing to support the story. I've read some books that have ridiculously over-the-top vocab and stunning prose, yet I felt disconnected from the story. And I've read a good story with the potential of becoming a best-seller but the writing was poorly executed that I ended up not finishing the poor book. It was such a waste of a beautiful idea or prose, so an author has to incorporate both elements in his/her books. Otherwise, don't write at all.
