SIDELIGHTS: Robert M. Jarvis once told CA: "The hardest thing about writing—be it a novel or a grocery list—is getting started. Whenever I begin a new project, I always repeat to myself the ancient Chinese proverb, 'The longest journey starts with one small step.' After that, everything else is easy."
