I write – and read – ….

In reading Ayn Rand’s introduction to The Fountainhead I found this interesting quote, and great advice:

“I write – and read – for the sake of the story….My basic test for any story is: ‘Would i want to meet these characters and observe these events in real life?  Is this story an experience worth living through for its own sake?  Is the pleasure of contemplating these characters an end in itself?'”
