Goodreads asked I.D. Johnson:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

I.D. Johnson The best thing about being a writer is giving life to the characters in your work. It's a bit like playing God. They live and breathe because we tell them they can. Writers are masters of their own universes. And sometimes those universes are extraordinary--sometimes they are dark and twisted. Either way, the author holds all of the power.
