Many people seem to think writers have huge egos. I can’t know for sure, but I don’t think so, and it hasn’t been my experience. I think that many, like me, are actually quite insecure. We may (at least on good days) think what we write is great shit—or we probably couldn’t keep writing. But I don’t know if writers in general think they are especially wonderful human beings.
Certainly many aren’t—and know it.
