What's More Important:
Having a good idea, or good writing skills?
This is a question synonymous to choosing between Water and Food- Actually they come in handy, no one is less important, and I will be highlighting how the dynamics play out simultaneously!
A Good idea is a catalylst for a good story or narrative, however a good writing skill is the pivot that blends ideas into progressive storytelling or narratives.
Thus I have theorised the creative Writing formular like this:
Good idea(Catalyst)+ Good Writing Skill(pivot)= Good Storytelling/Narrative.
Good ideas are also kickstarters for a progressive discourse, while good writing skill situates these ideas in perspective to avoid digression; after all, a good story or narrative is incomplete without a message or hitting the nail on the head.
You might have good ideas without a successful execution on paper!
Good ideas without the right application defeats the purpose of communication, which is, to achieve understanding, and this is where good Writing skills is needed. Proper translation of ideas lies in the prowess of good Writing skills, and as a writer, your creativity is well defined within this context.
The features of good Writing skills are:
Appropriate and correct use/usage of words.
Appropriate contextual application of words.
Relating words properly.
Proper use of punctuations
Cohesion and Cohesiveness.
And generally, crossing the T'S and dotting the I'S
The above mentioned features will clearly take care of a good idea and allow for progressive transition.
So having a good idea is just a tip of the iceberg as far as storytelling or any form of narrative is concerned, however a good Writing skill compliments it just well.
