Julie's home for March break so I have temporary relief as stay at home dad so I'm scrambling to get as much work done as possible. I'm almost done a Marrowbones story, the Kitchen Lich, which is 20 pages, and I'll add a couple more stories before selling it. I haven't been talking about it much because I'm trying the method Stephen King talks about in his book On Writing, of closing the door when doing the first pass at a story. This is my first visit to the Marrowbones Motel so I'm still getting used to it. But it's a place I sure like to be. Above is the Vampire Tree, a spot that features heavily in the stories. My idea with Marrowbones is to have it just short stories. Build up the world that way. A place I can go for stories between longer projects.
