There is that thing in the back of my mind where I think I don't really know who I am. And it may make it a little easier to shift around in my narrative voice. I've started them, Dave has started them, I've started the music, he's started the music, he's come up with the title, I've come up with the title.
It used to be that I generally started the words and music and then we worked on them together, and then Dave was more of the closer.
Everyone should be so lucky to have an editor as good as Dave.
