Back in December 2013, I ran a poll asking my readers (many who are also writers themselves) which part of any given fiction is more important: plot or characters. I wasn’t completely satisfied with this mere poll, and decided to expand this topic further with an open debate with others. I sent out a call to various authors/editors/writing coaches and several have answered!
I originally planned to run this “debate” with just a single posting; but each response I received was too good to break down into pieces. Instead, on each Wednesday (starting March 5th), I will run each one of these responses. At the end of each one, the readers will have a chance to chime in their own thoughts and input on the matter.
