Goodreads asked Michael Witheford:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Michael Witheford I quite like the hours, which are any time you like. Some nights I'll be working at 4am. Some mornings at 9am. What you have to accept if you're writing alone is that you'll miss out on a lot of normal social contact. Water cooler chat etc.
Writing is pure pleasure when things are clicking. I don't feel right unless I'm writing something, even if it's just emails.
