The Joy of Finishing (or Starting?) a Writing Project

Correspondent M.C. sends this quote he ran across today:

Writing the last page of the first draft is the most enjoyable moment in writing. It’s one of the most enjoyable moments in life, period.
— Nicholas Sparks, author (1965-)

M.C. notes that “this may be true for Mr. Sparks, but just getting that first sentence onto paper is one heck of a delight to me!”
M.C., I can only say that you are a braver person than me. Rather than delight, I am usually filled with abject fear and horror when I begin a writing project, which abates only when I’m done.
