Have you ever had one of those days when you look somebody in the eye and tell them, “You will fail as a Vampire.”
This isn’t one of those things someone can practice and master. You either have what it takes or you don’t.
Yes, it has been one of those days.
A lot of people come to this blog looking for directions on how to become a Vampire. Either that or wanting to know how a Vampire turns someone into a Vampire.
It isn’t how you think and you aren’t going to hear about it from me.
I can only imagine what would happen if the world filled up with completely unsuccessful, pitiful, failure Vampires. It would make great reality TV with names like “Blood Sick,” and “American Vampire,” or “Vlad Knows Best.” Or on MTV it would be called “Reality Sucks.” No thank you. And no intervention shows because you can’t go back.
Next week Clara and I are going to be on the road. We’re leaving the boys at home for a big sporting event in a city with few entertainments. My plan is to finish a book I’ve been working on for a while. Clara’s plan is to win every single event (or do her best) and work on AP History and AP English summer class work.
The book is not about Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts or other paranormal beings. There are no Gothic overtones. It is just a novel with a lot of twists and turns and I hope… I hope I can pull it off.
And yes, I’m going to have an editor look at the book before I send it out into the world. You’ve read this blog. You I can’t edit.
The only reason I’m telling you about this is an excuse to use the wonderful Christopher Lee Vampire Meme about writing created by my creative friend Jason Kemp (J Harrison Kemp.)
And yes, you should be writing.
I should be writing, so have a good evening. Enjoy the shadows, enjoy those you love and do something creative.
