Goodreads asked Ann Townsend:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Ann Townsend I have worlds in my head. I have voices and conversations that belong to characters in my head. Not all of it but, at least some of it, will resonate with someone else. Someone else will be able to consider my words and see a reflection of themselves or their own life. At least some people will be able to be as mesmerized and able to steal themselves away, if even for a moment in time, because I put my words out in the world and let them be read or heard by another. Writing is the joining of humanity through a shared experience or thought. That's powerful. That's writing.
