Goodreads asked Dale Martin:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Dale Martin Freedom. Freedom to create and invent. Freedom to express yourself. Freedom to be your own boss, your own product, determining on your own the what and the when and the how much of each and every work day. Of course, with all that comes a whole bunch of obstacles and responsibilities that have to be navigated -- work, family, life. So when you can successfully juggle those and find the time to explore the freedom of writing, whether in big blocks of time or a spare hour or two here and there, take full advantage.
