Scott William Carter
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Treat every reader as if they are the only one you have.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. I'm extremely proud to say I'm humble. Beyond that, I can't think of any others.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I was addicted to the phrase "you know," until someone explained to me that no, most people don't know.

Q. What are your 5 favorite songs?

A. That would be like choosing between my children. If I had five of them.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I remember Harrison Ford saying once in an interview that he didn't believe in happiness as a pure objective. I pretty much agree with that Happiness is a bi-product of doing something you love, something that gives you meaning. Since I love writing, I try to spend as much time doing it as possible. Now and then, I end up happy because of it.
