Goodreads asked K.P. Merriweather:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

K.P. Merriweather There's nothing at all and due to the facts of that, actually I hate it sometimes. Unless you write mainstream you're still nobody. The payment in peanuts and beans are nonexistent at times and it's a lot of work pushing books when you're close to poor (yes I'm a poor writer).. Only because I have stories to tell I keep writing. Only because I keep hoping that one person will understand my work and let me know, I keep writing. Not a lot of people understand my work nor care for it and that's fine. As long as it exists out there hopefully someone ejoys it. That's what keeps me going.
