Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread
Booking and writing are equally as important as each other, IMO, and to be considered good at "Be The Booker" so to speak, you need to be good at both and aim to perfect both skills. What I mean by that is that in essence, the good writing part is used to put the good booking in to action. You can have the most interesting and exciting, yet logical, storyline to have ever been assembled; if you can't write the promos, segments and matches in an entertaining and captivating way to put over the storyline or feud, then it's practically useless.
The same can be said the other way round. You can be the best writer in the world; you understand the English languge perfectly and can entice the audience with your words, but if the words contain no substance or reason, then I may as well just go and read a dictionary and it kind of defys the point of booking.
What I'm trying to say through all of that you can't really choose one over the other. Not to say that you have to write 16000 word shows but logically, the more you write, the more you can show off and the more you can write well. If you focus primarily on one aspect of your work, then the audience you appeal to will become narrower and narrower.
