Q: What’s the best thing about being a writer? Goodreads

A: “When I was young, writing was a way to express myself, sort out my feelings and beliefs, and in school, get positive attention. As I grew up and became a professional journalist, writing became a way to make a living in a way that aligned with both my interests and most impactful way to affect the world in a positive way. Today, it is all of those things!”
