If I go into a project without any fear, it usually means I’m not stretching myself. I’m treading on old ground, and the only concern is whether I’ll stay awake while working.

If I’m pushing the envelope, I can tell. My hands feel like they’ve lost all strength, and I can’t work up enough saliva to keep my throat wet. I am, literally, scared spitless.

Fear just naturally comes with creativity.
