Plot or Character?

Which kinds of books do you prefer: character-driven or plot-driven?


Depends on the type of book you’re writing. You can find examples of both in every genre; every book needs both solid characters and an interesting plot. If I had to choose, I go for the character because I need to care what happens to them.

One thought on “Plot or Character?”

  1. I absolutely agree.

    At least genre novels with little characterization are usually a quick read. Nothing’s worse than a literary novel that goes nowhere.
