As a writer, I can become self-involved in my novels and promotional activities, but the one thing to bring about a sense of humility is to play video games with a nine-year-old. My granddaughter always challenges me to WII games when we visit her. I used to be a competitive tennis player, but let me tell you, she always clobbers me at WII tennis. And it’s not just because I’ve aged. I can still hold my own in real racquet sports but with the video games, I’m just cannon fodder. Oh, well. I can write it off as helping her with her self-esteem. But what about mine?
