in between days

When I'm in-between projects is when I get the craziest, but I guess that's where the ideas come from. The last one was hard to get away from because I got so involved in it that I sent my wife and kids away on vacation so I could work alone. And when I was finished and put it away, it was kind of like a burial or something; so I just wanted to get myself back into work... on anything... just to try to get my head back. Like I said in an earlier post, I definitely do not love writing... in fact, I'm pretty sure I hate it. But the alternative is unbearable.

What of all those wayward priests?
The ones who like to drink
Do you suppose they'd swap their blood for wine
Like you swapped yours for ink, for ink
