Blogging from A to Z: Story

I am a sucker for a good story. 

While I certainly feel that I can appreciate good writing when I encounter it, it is in no way a prerequisite for my enjoyment of a particular book/movie/TV show.  For example, I kept thinking about the plot of Gone for Good by Harlan Coben even though I think the actual text may have been written by a monkey.  I totally did not see that ending coming.  I also couldn't stop watching the third season of Veronica Mars even though the show had jumped the shark so high and far that I couldn't believe it hadn't been cancelled.

Mercifully, I have lately encounter several instances of that rare, delicious combination of good writing and a good story. 

And what happens when you have neither?  Ugh.  I'd rather not talk about it.
