I remember reading about Twilight author Stephenie Meyer saying that she identifies herself as a story-teller, as opposed to a more literary writer (although I forget the contrasted term she used). Does anyone else make this distinction? Obviously there needs to be some cross-over between a love of words/ language, and telling a story, but do you think that difference in emphasis - telling a story vs. *how* you tell it or write it being more important - is valid? When I think of literary writers, I think of Ian McEwan, Julian Barnes etc. You open one of their books and you immediately think, "Hmm, high-brow. This person is a helluva writer". but I'm probably not being discerning enough about these categories (story-teller vs, literary writer). Can anyone shed more light on this contrast, if it exists? Or do you view yourself as more one than the other?
