I'm working on a new horror book and found myself working on it until the wee hours of the morning. I remember when I was little. I had a skeleton costume for Halloween. For several nights, I had to have the light left on and I still had nightmares of skeletons. My mom threatened to never let me go Trick or Treating again, though she'd forgotten by the next Halloween.
Anyway, it occurred to me, with all of the horror projects I've been involved with, not once has anyone ever submitted a story to me with any skeletons in it. I wonder why. Probably will never know.
