1. What do you like best about writing?
I’m captain of my own ship. I can do anything I want within wherever and whatever I’m capable of imagining.

When I was five or six. For some reason I realized I had no interest in a day-to-day job very early in life, and I loved to read. Writing made sense to me way back then. Sometimes it still does.
