“Just as a good man [woman] forgets his deed the moment he has done it, a genuine writer [artist] forgets a work as soon as he has completed it and starts to think about the next one; if he thinks about his past work at all, he is more likely to remember its faults than its virtues. Fame often makes a writer vain, but seldom makes him proud.” – W.H. Auden [parentheses: mine]

      I doubt you even know the word “vain” – smile.
