That's a tough one because I think there are so many things that are great about being a writer. I love meeting "fans". It is great to connect with folks who appreciate your work. I like being able to work at home, which also means I don't have a uniform or have to wear dress clothes. I like setting my own hours. Actually, I work longer hours than many people I know but they are not 9 - 5. Sometimes I get an idea and start writing (in my pajamas) at 2 a.m. or write for ten hours straight. But what I like most, I suppose, is the creative process. I am a creative person and love the writing process. Once I have an idea, I'm on fire to see it through to fruition. I love turning one blank piece of paper into a book. It's an indescribable feeling when I unwrap the proof copy sent by the publisher's production department or when the actual copies arrive from the printer. I did it! I did this! That's the best thing about being a writer.
