The things I find the most fun about being a DM is exercising creativity(whether it's good or bad, just getting it out of my head), and seeing the player's smiles and seeing them genuinely enjoy themselves. If the players aren't having a good time, neither am I.
I have a weird way of running games, and it's taken me many years to put together a group of like-minded players who enjoy my style. I finally feel like I've got just the right group, and we're having an absolute blast. I get to create backdrops and scenery for their characters to live in, and in turn they get really into character, and give me lots of inspiration to build off of. It's a cycle of fun and inspiration, and at the end of the session, we feel exuberant and satisfied.
