Sorry this is so late! The best thing about being a writer is putting yourself into someone else's shoes. I love that in one moment, I can be a deadly assassin and in the next, I can channel a wizard. Writing is a real form of magic. As an author, I can create worlds and bend characters to my will. I can make sense of nonsense. I can make things the way I want them to be. The best thing about being a writer however is getting to inspire others.
