Goodreads asked F.C. Schaefer:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

F.C. Schaefer While writing, you really get to be your characters, at least for a little while; the good and the bad. And you get to go all the places they do and experience everything they do; you feel their pain and revel in their triumphs. This is true for my protagonists and my villains; there is nothing better than a creating a great bad guy and letting him go to work. Heroes don't need to be flawed, but they need to be interesting; give them a selfish reason for putting themselves at risk. There is nothing like the adventure of crafting a story and filling it with great people for the reader to meet.
