Goodreads asked Keith R.A. DeCandido:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Keith R.A. DeCandido Every once in a while I am contacted by readers who tell me about how profoundly something I wrote affected them in some way or other. One person actually got into politics in part because of my Star Trek novel Articles of the Federation. Another said that one of my books got him through a rough time in his life. Another told me that my Spider-Man novel got her daughter to start reading books when nothing else would.

That's what makes it all worthwhile.
