Thursday Writing Quote ~ Mark Twain

"The test of any good fiction is that you should care something for the characters; the good to succeed, the bad to fail. The trouble with most fiction is that you want them all to land in hell, together, as quickly as possible.  – Mark Twain


  1. I love this quote. As with most Twain quotes, I laughed out loud as I marveled at the truth of it. :)
