Goodreads asked D.S. Arnauld:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

D.S. Arnauld Starting a new project and choosing the character names. When you build a world you get to set the rules, but then you have to stick to them: POV, technology, distance, who has power and for how long?

My favorite part of the process is the first few days of pure creativity at the beginning. I've read Da Vinci felt the same way and that is why he wasn't concerned with finishing things. I empathize completely.
