Value Yourself

This is something every writer should take a few minutes to read

Another aspect to this: bragging, tooting your own horn, being full of yourself = bad.

Interacting with others, all that's left is emphasizing the negative. I don't talk about the latest sale or how I wrote through a sticky problem or -- heaven forbid -- the joy I receive writing. I talk about car problems.

It is hard to know where the line between braggart and self-promotion lies, Stephen. On the blog I talk about the joy of writing but rarely anywhere else.

I wonder if not speaking about ourselves goes back to the old adage, "Pride goeth before a fall."? By not speaking, we are in some way protecting ourselves from failure.
