Goodreads asked David Scott:

What’s your advice for aspiring writers?

David Scott Turn your aspiration into inspiration, and your inspiration into perspiration. That is, start at it, take your first step, and see what comes next. Find that deeper expression that’s inside you, that’s waiting for you and for that moment to come out. It’s been my experience that when we take our first step with a clear intention, the next step is provided for us -- by God, Spirit, Universe, whatever your belief. And one other thing: don’t allow anyone else to deny you the gift of living your dream by processing it through the constrictive consciousness of another. The greatest human achievements, advancements have manifest from the expansive state, where we stretch beyond the known, the familiar, and into the unknown and more familiar.
