J♥ Top Secret songwriting project

J♥ Jack of Hearts in The Rock Songwriter’s Deck: 52 Ways to Write a Song

The Jack of Hearts reveals that you are on a top-secret mission. Your mission, unless you insist on refusing it, is to write that next song. I think you know which song I'm talking about.

It's important that you keep this song absolutely secret until it's finished. Don't boast, don't gossip, don't hint that you're doing something important and creative. Don't let anyone even suspect that you're writing this song. Keep your lyrics and notes out of sight, locked away from prying eyes. You must not give you-know-who — or anyone else, for that matter — a chance to interfere with your creative process.

When the song is finished and perfected, then you can unleash it on the world.

Oh — so what is the song supposed to be about? Well, if I told you, then I would already know too much, wouldn't I? You might already be clear about this song's subject matter. If not, one of your co-conspirators will soon surreptitiously pass you the information you need.

Now, casually click away from the blog, and act as though nothing out of the ordinary is happening. Good luck! Godspeed!
