Goodreads asked John M. Donovan:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

John M. Donovan I enjoy the act of writing itself, but also like knowing that I've entertained or enlightened readers with my particular talent. There's also a lot of truth in Toni Morrison's quote: "If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."
