The best thing about being a writer is getting a review from someone who really liked the story. Sure, writing is fun, but if no one reads it or enjoys it, then it's just a hobby. Telling stories is more than just a hobby for me. I want to touch people's lives with the lives of others I create within my books. I want people to fall in love with the people in my books. I want them to ship this person with that person by writing their own fan-fiction versions of my stories. If I can do that, then that is the most awesome reward ever of being a writer and storyteller.
