Goodreads asked Dennis L. Decker:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Dennis L. Decker Man, I can type so fast these days! And I don't even use proper form! Also, I like having a large vocabulary. Being a writer forces me to learn all kinds of new words, but then I can turn around and use them in casual conversation and I sound way more smarterer than I really am. Plus, I find myself accidentally using words I don't actually know the definitions of, and yet somehow I still use them correctly! So I guess the best thing about being a writer is that it makes language and speech more fun and interesting? Idunno, that sounds really boring when I read it out loud, but I'm a weird guy so I'll leave it like that.
