Digging in the Boneyards


I like to work from a set of bones when I write my stories. Just a skeletal brief outline. If I don’t do this I find myself going off in twenty directions that wind up no where. But when I’m working on the arm say, I know I need to add only arm kind of stuff, the leg, leg stuff and so on. But sometimes the bones feel as if they have set too long. They seem ancient. This ususally means it wasn’t a very viable story in the first place. But today for some reason I had some bone ghost pop-up demanding my attention and I just couldn’t ignore it. Oddly enough something pretty great is coming from it. Got me to thinking that maybe I should exhume some of the others.
