Flannery O’Connor, on self-abandonment

waterWriting is a good example of self-abandonment. I never completely forget myself except when I am writing and I am never more completely myself than when I am writing.

(Flannery O’Connor to Betty Hester, December 9, 1961, as quoted in The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O’Connor, p. 458.)
