Goodreads asked Shawn Kerivan:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Shawn Kerivan Watching the bemused expression spread across people's faces when I tell them I'm a writer. Then watching them take a step back.

Actually, the best thing about being a writer is knowing that I am a writer. That knowledge isn't something that can be taught. It simply exists within, and it's the writer's job to uncover it. That process produces access to stories. Then I write them down.
