I’ve been obsessed with vampires since before my age hit double digits.
I’ve seen everything from this:
And all the bad in between:
I have read about them almost as much,
They have been portrayed as funny, friendly, cruel, tormented, sexy, and sadistic.
I have seen them as children, teenagers, middle aged, old, and ancient.
And I love them as much today as I ever have.
But I still have no desire to write about them. The strange reality is I can’t because I’m overexposed to the subject. I cannot honestly think of an original take on it. At least not yet and I will not make any sort of attempt until I am certain I could do it better than it’s been done before.
In this situation, I would be my own toughest critic. But then maybe we always are.
Is there a genre that you love but would never attempt to write in?
