Goodreads asked Jon Lang:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Jon Lang For me, writing is therapeutic. It's for all the issues I could never understand by speaking with a friend, psychiatrist, or even myself. As a result, I build a house, a world, a galaxy for people to inhabit. I pose my question to the characters I create, and they answer it based on their own experiences. I just record their responses.

I have come to understand myself better than I ever have through writing. I'll be glad if my journey helps someone else.
