[Writing] House of Hands draft

About 400 good words this morning. I was having some trouble figuring out how to do the transition from Julie and Mason talking to the first story. This first story is the yuckiest by far. I had to stopped writing a little sooner than I wanted to because I need to think about the murderer's point of view some. "It starts with blood." Julie said. "These things always start with the shedding of blood."

As I was starting to think about my murderer, this popped into my head: Dolls don't scream. Dolls don't cry. Dolls do what they're told to do and they don't get punished.

Sometimes, I creep myself out.
