Goodreads asked Maureen A. Griswold:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Maureen A. Griswold The initial rush and intrigue when a concept, a story possibility, happens spontaneously followed by the detective-type process regarding why/how it's occurred and the possibilities of what I can do with it. Of course, what follows is work, even spells of drudgery, in going through the process of writing, re-writing, what the story is for me to share with the reader. Getting those creative "flashes" -- even if it means work ahead -- is always something I find mysterious, intriguing, compelling, and enjoyable.
