My novel needs work. Every novel needs work. Pick your favorite novel. Is it perfect in every way? What might make it better?
Why do people like poorly written books anyway? I hear this a lot about very popular books, “It’s not well written, but…”
It must be well written on some level or it would be gibberish. If it conveys a compelling story and characters, then something was written the way it should be. Right?
I could almost suspect that being popular means being poorly written. As if we can’t admit a popular book can also be well written.
If poorly written books are the successful ones…why am I trying so hard?
But do the authors of these bestsellers believe their books are not well-written? I suspect not.
No matter how perfectly a novel is written, someone, maybe a lot of someones, isn’t going to like it.
Well, what poorly written novel do you love? Why? Do you think you could make it better?
