Goodreads asked Bert Oldenhuis:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Bert Oldenhuis Independence. No one tells you what to write, how to write it or when it should be finished. You are your own boss; you control your own creative output. The next best thing is if you have a publisher who promises you the world by giving you a deadline to finish your next novel.
