Get an Agent Blogfest

I’ve been looking forward to Deana’s Get an Agent Blogfest all month and now Week 1 is finally here!! Eep!

Everyone should go and sign up because it’s awesome.

So, here’s my question! Are you a character driven writer (or reader if you prefer) or are you plot driven?

If the plot is weak but the character is strong then I will absolutely keep reading. This applies to my writing, although hopefully this doesn’t mean I have weak plots, lol. I try to have fully developed characters who are flawed, as we are in real life, but also are able to overcome their weaknesses.

What kind of writer are you? Do you think there’s a happy medium we can reach between character and plot?

(Btw, I’ve been driving across country for the past couple days and completely forgot to post yesterday for Sentence Sunday. Sorry guys! I’ll catch up next week. 🙂 )
