Goodreads asked Jon Frankel:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Jon Frankel You get to create your entire world. You do it all. If there's a sign on the wall, you are a sign maker. if there's a menu, you are a menu writer. I get to be all of my characters. How many adults are allowed to sit alone in a room for hours a day imagining things beyond themselves?
