A John Steinbeck Quote

From author John Steinbeck to editor Pascal Covici, Monday, March 26, 1951.

I wonder why, on such a day as this, when the story is particularly clear in my head, I have a kind of virginal reluctance to get to it. I seem to want to think about it and moon about it for a very long time before I actually get down to it. Today, I think I know one of the main reasons. Today’s work is so important that I am afraid of it.
