When I lived in San Antonio mumble mumble years ago I took acting classes. There I was taught the 4 stages that every actor goes through. I think it applies to writers as well.

1.)    Unconscious incompetence. (you don’t know you stink)

2.)    Conscious incompetence. (you, sadly, know that you stink)

3.)    Conscious competence. (you, hopefully humbly, are aware you are competent)

4.)    Unconscious competence. (you are competent without much conscious effort)

I’m rolling around in #2 presently. (no snickering! It’s what us scubadogs do!)
