Pride, everyone’s felt it. It’s one of the seven deadly sins and many say the worst however I’ve noticed it in myself and others in a way that I never noticed before:
Many people are proud of their other character flaws, they will boast of how angry they were or how they’ll get revenge on someone. It could even be as simple as pride in how drunk they were, or locker room talk of conquests.
This pride in negative acts is dangerous because you will never try to rectify a behaviour you feel proud of, and you will encourage yourself to repeat it.

David Chambers grew up in Coventry in the 80's and 90's. A time and place not known for literature, he was never the less raised on a road named after Robert Louis Stevenson. His walk to school took him through roads named after Joseph Addison, Rudyard Kipling and Charles Dickens. Oblivious to the inspiration he followed his career advisor into engineering and spent the next couple of decades forgetting his earlier love of reading and writing stories.
Finally, a change of role left him with lots of flights and nights in hotels. After filling his spare time with reading he decided it was time to create his own stories and finally put pen to paper.
