What would happen if your ego knew you were never going to give up? What would it say if you were going to literally Die Creating.  I think my ego would say something like this…. Dear Self, How could you do this to me. You know I don’t like it when you start typing away at that stupid novel and please stop getting that ugly notebook out.
