Booking Through Thursday - Character or Plot?
Booking Through Thursday asks this week:
What’s more important to you? Real, three-dimensional, fleshed-out fascinating characters? Or an amazing, page-turning plot?
For me an amazing, page-turning plot. Reason being is that you can have fleshed-out, real, three-dimensional characters all you want, but if your plot is not great, you are probably not going to get a lot of readers to read your book. Its the plot that gets people to read your book for the most part and its how your characters become real, three-dimensional and fleshed-out. True, if the plot is really good, but the characters aren't as fleshed-out, it probably won't get a lot of readers, but at least with an amazing, page-turning plot there is the potential for real, three-dimensional, fleshed-out characters.
