Goodreads asked A.L. Sowards:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

A.L. Sowards Being able to edit. In life, you can’t change the past. I can’t count the number of times I wish I would have said or done something differently. With writing, I can change a scene or a line around until it’s perfect, even if it takes a few tries (or a few dozen) to get it right.
