The panic of success

Yesterday I emailed a revised draft of my first chapter to my diss. director. It had taken almost 2 weeks to rewrite, but the writing was (oddly enough) the easiest and most rewarding I've done in a while. But here's the problem--the Kay Boyle chapter is for all intents and purposes done (at least for now). Which leaves me standing before the gaping chasm that is the Fitzgerald chapter.

Why is it so hard to get started?

PS- for anyone interested the Hemingway book turned out to be a reprint. Still a limited edition, so still somewhat valuable, but just a different sort of incompetence on the library's part...

PPS- I finally figured out how to work the whole comment button thing-- so have at it.
