I find the difference between a good story and a story well told fascinating, as a do with most thing. (No matter what preferences you have to define either.) I think this is most apparent in real life when you both have people who been through something fascinating and tells about it with more of less skills for storytelling. And you have people who can spin anything no matter how trivial into a fantastic story. I wounder what how you think it applies to writing and if you can come up with any examples of writer you think belong in each end of the spectrum. And if it is a useful distinction to make. I think so, since telling a story really well and coming up with a good story is two different set of skills, and if you want to develop I think its useful to identify where the problem lies.
