Goodreads asked James Newman:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

James Newman Feedback. Writing is a solitary profession, one with no immediate reward (beyond the enjoyment of the craft itself). Once a project is finished and out there in the world, there's no greater feeling than to finally hear back from folks who were willing to spend their hard-earned bucks for something you worked so hard to create. And when they actually dig it . . . ? Oh, that's just a cherry on top.
