River of Bones Update

I've been thinking and writing and backspacing and thinking again on this story. It is the fun and frustrating time of the creative process. While I feel like I've settled into a good line of attack, I'm watching the word count climb and I'm not sure where it's going to end. I'm up to 5700 words now and that's getting to be a bit long for current tastes in short fiction. I'll keep hammering away at it and see what shape it takes; I'll either end up with a work of art or a battered and bruised lump of pig iron. I suppose both have their uses.

Well, until I get something titled Runt of the Litter, I'd leave the pig iron behind.
