I'm writing a book. - Eeek!!!!!!

For my sabbatical I have decided to write a book. Straight away I hear myself answering the question "So what are doing on your sabbatical? ", with "Umm, well I'm kind of writing a book" , and I follow that up quickly with "actually it might just be a pamphlet".  It gets a laugh. I know what I'm doing though - it's called saving face in advance. I am a huge reader of books - there is never a time when I am not reading one - the thing is I have never lost my awe of the people who write them.  For me there is something magical about these people and I am finding it somewhat arrogant of myself to imagine I could enter the magical realm.
