Some of my guiding principles with my fiction-writing, what I always aim for, whether I achieve them or not, are as follows:

1/ As John L’Heureux has said: “You must get beyond divertissement, sketch, anecdote, the interesting moment. You must get to the mystery of human personality. What is the line of the story that leads us to a point where we see or intuit something we haven’t before?”

2/ As Joy Williams has described here, particularly about sentences that can stand strikingly alone.
