Goodreads asked Elden Dare:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Elden Dare THE best thing? Man.

Freedom.
Creativity.
Therapy.
Immortality.

I can't think of just one. All I know is when I have a pen in my hands, or a keyboard, or a typewriter (yes, I'm old school), sometimes even a Facebook status; Something happens. I'm free. I'm creating people, worlds, emotions, scenes, LIFE. Stories. I make it. I made that. I created it, birthed it like I birthed my children. It's a part of me. My soul. My deepest secrets and desires. I get to let go the things that haunt me.
I bleed ink, and the stains form words and they'll exist. They'll live beyond my years and BE regardless of publication or fame. Every word I write. Every sentence I type is my legacy.

What's better than that?
