Because Marked needs actual files on the disk to work with, this isn't currently possible. I may work out a means to do it with AppleScript someday, but it's far more complex than working with VoodooPad or Scrivener, for example.
For right now you have to use external files for composing. I keep one scratch file handy and re-use it for things like that, just always having it open in Marked and then hitting ⌘E to edit in my external editor. The next version of Marked does support Clipboard Preview, which basically makes it really fast to open a scratch file with the clipboard contents and preview it, optionally using ⌘E to edit directly.
You can also play with QuickCursor (I think it's on the App Store now) for quickly editing a Mail window in a scratch file, which could then be opened in Marked, but I'm not sure how well that would go without trying it out.

Thanks, Brett for answering so fast,
the clipboard trick sounds nice, I'm looking forward to the next
version of Marked.
Regarding "Marked needs actual files on the disk": Mail.app does
this. If I start writing a mail and do a cmd-s, then a real file is
saved to disk. The trick is to find out the filename, which is
buried deep in
