Goodreads asked Alex Bugaeff:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Alex Bugaeff After months of research, I enjoy having my writing come out the way I had hoped - to go back over it and revel in its beauty.

Then, to submit it to my editor and have her beat the hell out of it. Having to struggle to "kill my darlings." Having to find and correct/incorporate the edits and to rewrite to make it better.

I guess you'd say I like everything about writing...and little about the marketing, but that's the lament of most of us.
