I got excited yesterday. Some might call it stress, but I am going to call it just excitement. I wrote my daily quota on a book, a daily quota that I often don’t meet. And I felt happy and mostly satisfied that the writing had flowed so well.
Then, in my excitement, I couldn’t sleep well last night. Please give me two things: good writing AND good sleep. If any pattern of the ego is involved, may this habit just fall away.
Yes, that is it, isn’t it? A habit of feeling buoyed up in a drama when the writing goes well. And that is ego. What I am leaving behind. Now I know yet another way to leave the ego behind.
Don’t let my writing get me too excited.
And I will sleep well.
