The secret to staying Humble...
Stage 1: Melodrama
When I think I've just written a world shattering deep passage that will win a Nobel prize, or at least a Peabody, and make it to millions of Pinterest boards because it's so profound and life empowering...
Stage 2: Action/Adventure
"This action scene is AWESOME!"
This isn't logical, doesn't make sense, and no one could survive such nonsense.
Run, run, run!!!
Stage 3: Dialogue
"Witty banter-- this is totally working--I'm like multiple-personality-good at writing dialogue!"
In real life someone would be slapped by now...
Probably a couple times.
Stage 4: Humor
"I'm a comedic genius!"
What the heck?!? Delete--delete--delete!!!
At least maintaining humility is an entertaining process that I have the chance to fix before the world is exposed.
