Goodreads asked Michael J. Mitchell:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Michael J. Mitchell 1) Recording what has been bouncing off the walls of my mind for a long time. I sleep better after writing. 2) It's often more entertaining and enlightening than other entertainment opportunities. I don't want that to sound prideful--I'm not a better writer than book choices I have in front of me, but to discover what a character is going to do and be there at the birth of those actions and thoughts is amazing. 3) I hope others can benefit from my work leading to their own discoveries and satisfaction as they read what I have written.
