Goodreads asked John Scherber:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

John Scherber For me, the best thing about writing is independence. I had a very controlling parent and I grew up unable to take orders. I didn't enjoy giving them either. Writing gives me total freedom of choice, of writing and managing my 22 books, and of promoting them the best way I can. Freedom involves taking responsibility for what you do, because only if you own them can you learn from your mistakes.
