I think it’s pretentious for a writer to claim that any work arrived without involving the writer’s ego. That’s like bragging about your humility. Writing isn’t channeling, or if a channeler writes something it’s also rife with ego. Nevertheless, a writer should have tricks to avoid writer’s block, which may involve a means of avoiding overthinking an assignment. Let’s not brag about avoiding overthinking. No one can stop thinking; I think we are thinking even when we’re dreaming. In my opinion, writing of a dream is not like dreaming.
