Book Blogger Hop! Dec 17-19

It’s time for the hop again!

Book Blogger Hop

This week’s question:
“What do you consider most important in a story: the plot or the characters?”

You mean I can’t have both? Honestly though, you can’t have a good story without both. Think of all the books you loved over the years. Maybe you remember the characters, but I bet you remember the plot too. For me, especially as a writer, the two are practically inseparable. If you don’t have good characters your plotline will suffer. And of course, vice versa, if your plotline is awful or just doesn’t fit the characters you have chosen, your characters will come across as inconsistent or lacking in some way.

So yeah, basically my answer is: this is a trick question.

What do you think?

    I agree! I think they are both important! But if one is lacking, I prefer a good plot. My hop is at Coffee Table Press

    Hey Anne, just stopping by on the hop. I completely agree, there has to be harmony or the story is a failure. The environment the characters find themselves in is just as important and the characters themselves. I must be a trick question. Have a great weekend.

    Hi new follower here, Stopping by to wish you a Happy Holiday and I have to agree both need to be hand and hand though I am leaning towards characters.

    This might be the best Book Blogger Hop question I've seen to date.

    So what's the answer? Plot! Hop over to my blog and let me tell you how a good plot rescued bad characters from bad book oblivion.
