Sometimes, like anyone else, a writer can become full of themselves with a sense they are doing really good, with a sweet sense of pride.
I try and nip it in the bud. I don’t like the feeling as it puts a wedge between me, my readers, my writing and my Creator who I should give glory to, rather than myself.
When one becomes a bit puffed up with themselves, it’s best to be grounded–with one’s feet on the ground. To consider one’s self with sober judgment, because that’s when the good work gets done, when one isn’t playing it for the crowds, but is the genuine article.
