Goodreads asked Deirdre Riordan Hall:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

Deirdre Riordan Hall Don't wait for permission or the "big idea." Delete aspiring from in front of writer by simply writing. And it's ok if it isn't brilliant, you'll only get where you want to go by starting now and writing every day until brilliance, however you define it, emerges.
