Goodreads asked Lyz Russo:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Lyz Russo Aw man! The way a story can take you away into its world, and you can watch it unfold, and go off the rails, and pull a halt to it, and sit your characters down and have that critical conversation with them ("listen, Ailyss, do you really want to continue working for the Unicate? Or do you need to be rescued?"), and erase the bad bits and do it again, this time better, and...

Sometimes, the way you can torture a character to absolute breaking point, and then let something most unusual happen to save their hide.
