Goodreads asked Robert Milner:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Robert Milner The best thing about being a writer is finishing the writing. That feels great. The second best thing is the royalty report. In today's world you can virtually get royalty reports daily, which is hugely motivational. Frequent sales and royalty reports are a classic example of B.F. Skinner's operant conditioning in action. The reward of seeing the sales and royalties shortly after the work of writing is the best defense against writer's block.
