Goodreads asked David McGowan:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

David McGowan The best thing is connecting with someone who you've made a difference to with characters that you invented. When those characters become real for other people, and when they're moved or touched or thrilled by what you've done, then it makes all the hard day's, all the struggles, all the self-doubt worthwhile. Writers live for their readers. Without them, we are nothing!
