Goodreads asked James Carmichael:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

James Carmichael Mrm.

For me, it's that I'm pretty unhappy if I'm not writing and then trying to find ways to get my writing in front of people. And that knowing that -- just knowing that people are reading my work or seeing the play or whatever -- resonates and makes me feel sort of settled and content in a way that nothing else ever has.

But really it's the cash. Obviously.
