What do you like best about writing?

Technology - I admire those writers who toiled with quills and parchment, and those who wrote by hand, and those who used typewriters. My iMac is my best friend. It saves everything, remembers my place, checks my spelling and keeps my stories organized. I'm free to imagine, build new worlds, and meet new characters.
