Goodreads asked Maggie Shayne:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Maggie Shayne There are too many things to count. Being able to make a living, doing something you love so much you'd do it for free, is one of the biggest blessings I can imagine. Being able to work at home, to make my own hours, to take days off in the middle of the week if the kids have a soccer game or something, to be able to live life on my own terms. And then there's just the magic of creating. We are never more Divine than when we are creating. It's the most Goddess-like/God-like thing we do, besides loving, of course.
