I love the in between times. Because that's when the thinking and planning gets done. You don't need a computer, you just need a quiet place to sit and think and watch the next idea as it appears and start to grow into a story. It occurred to me that my next project will be a spy thing. I don't know any more than that at the moment. But I was organizing my lyrics tonight and came across a piece called Agent Provocateur, which is what the people who did stuff (like arranging assassinations and other bad shit) for spies used to be called once upon a time. These were guys who often plays both ends against the middle and it took all their skill and cunning to basically stay alive. This poem will be posted on Biz Catalyst soon. So you can have a look.
