What makes a story good? Beautiful, lit, entertaining?
Do we all have a different taste? Or do we desire the same thing?
Why only read your favorite genre, why not go outside of it?
For the past couple days, I’ve been wondering these question’s answers. I never found one. To me, if a story is something extraordinary (which by means, even though I’m a romance-hater, if it has unique plot, like The Bad Boy Game) and has decent/amazing directing. That makes it a gem. It’s not hard to write a beautiful story with “stands screen center”, neither it’s impossible to cover your plot holes with your directing.
If a story has realism in it, that means it’s a gem for me. It’s something I never see. (This is the reason why I hate romance stories) If the pace is not slow (it doesn’t take 20 episodes to get in to the point) the story is a gem for me.
What are your opinions? What makes a story a gem? Not good, not great, a GEM.
A perfect story.
