The Best Thing About Being a Writer



I’ve begun exploring Goodreads in earnest. I highly recommend it for writers and readers. One of its many features gives readers the opportunity to ask questions of writers. Below is a question from the site and my answer.

What is the best thing about being a writer?

“I’m blessed with being able to learn much about myself as I create characters, settings, situations, dreams, fears, challenges, and settings to be experienced by readers in their own unique ways around the world. Writing creates the opportunity for writers and readers to learn more about themselves and others, fostering greater understanding and closer connections.”

If you already use Goodreads, I invite you to friend or follow me, and if you aren’t I recommend you check it out.


With Love,
