Goodreads asked Dirk Patton:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Dirk Patton Getting emails and reviews from readers that are enjoying my work. That is a total rush! To be able to create something from scratch, put it down on paper (well, on the screen) and then have someone else read it and feel like they are in the world you've created in, that's an amazing feeling.
