Goodreads asked J.B. North:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

J.B. North For me, writing is calming. If your life is in total turmoil, writing is a way to transform all your worries into an art. Not only that, but writing makes you think about life in a totally different way. Whenever something bad or funny or gross happens to a writer, one of their first thoughts is, "What if I put that in a book?" Being a writer brings a whole new perspective to every situation.
