Goodreads asked Gary M. Nelson:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Gary M. Nelson The best thing about being a writer is the freedom to create something new - new worlds, new stories.
However it also comes with a sort of responsibility to the characters - you can't just write what you want all the time. The characters 'speak' back when you try to write them doing something that would be out of character.
In some ways it is like watching your own children develop - you don't always know how it will end up, and they are full of surprises.
