Create Vampires/Why Create Vampires

Why Create Vampires?Edit

What would happen if you woke-up one day with a horrible craving for blood?
What if you woke up, then slowly realized that you were invisible, would you get dressed out of habit?
What if you woke-up one day both hungry and invisible? What would you do?
These are questions writers may consider when approaching fictional narratives. Stories about ghosts, angels, zombies and vampires are popular
with modern readers, yet why do people write about vampires? Should you?

Perhaps writing creatively about a fascinating subject is a bit of a dream. In order to first figure out what to write, some people may choose to
gather together with other writing students to consider and experiment with ideas and techniques of use to other Writers.
Classes that encourage creative writing, may encourage exploration of fascinating subjects, such as vampires.
Exploration of unusual subjects can be rewarding to the creative spirit!

Creative writing is a self-developmental process involving your creativity, using established techniques of the Writer’s craft, shaped by your level of honesty.
In creative writing classes, your story is not just your creative expression, each story you take time to write is similar to a window allowing people
to share in the communication process. You don’t just share common norms about spelling, grammar, or idiomatic expressions used by normal people,
your story can share information about how a group of people reacted to life-altering events, meaning your stories can in a general sense,
reflect the society and times you observe and write about.

Because every writer is advised to “write what you know,” you may willingly look for safe ways to write what you know, creatively,
in a non-factual manner that may not share factual information, yet will express your emotions, or will reflect the feelings of everyone.
Creative writing is about telling a story, in a expressive, original manner. Techniques like tone, meaning how to express the right mood,
emotional intensity, or level of humor, meaning how we tell the story using the right tone to a reader who is unable to hear you,
or hear the people your story will reflect, may become easier after we have developed better writing skills.

Creative writing is a subject about developing better writing skills, and allowing honest expression, often in non-factual, creative ways.

Writers who write about the vampires from their imagination maybe following their own personal creative spirit.

WARNING: Vampires of the imagination in action!

Giving warnings against vampires of the imagination maybe a useful device writers could explore.

Typical vampires of the imagination are not friendly characters, they seem to possess unusual traits and characteristics, they are not popular,

almost un-loveable, and very problematic.

Traits Characteristics
Pale / Deadly pale Enjoy isolation / Loner personality
Long fangs / Fang-ish teeth Predator personality
Thin Alpha Male type
Black hair / Brown Hair "Energy Vampire" : Negativity, overly dramatic, hostile rages, complaints and sad stories.
Re-animated corpse with failing body issues.

Vampires of the imagination that seem to be re-animated, walking corpses, some with dominate alpha-male behaviors and sharp cuspids, could be a terror, a monster,

or a walking nightmare to a town, or neighborhood. It is easy for Writers to warn their readers against such a vampire [...of the imagination], yet what about vampires with

subtle negative energy influences? What of Energy vampires and other less monster-ish vampires of the imagination?

"Le Vampire"

Vampire stories found in Eastern European Folklore often warn people against evil characters, or of a evil character [the antagonist]

who in a malicious manner seeks to harm innocent people. Regardless of the motive, the methods are of drugging [poisoning] the victim,

which often leads to the innocent person getting buried alive, and / or having their graves robbed by grave-robbers interested

in robbing the rich. Many Eastern European folk stories have warnings against grave-robbers!

Some traits for vampires of the imagination are obviously supernatural, yet other vampires of the imagination possess normal traits, yet are described as displaying unusual behaviors. In 1819, John Polidore wrote The Vampyre, a fictional piece that is noted as having introduced vampires of modern Fiction. The Poet Rudyard Kipling wrote in his The Vampire in 1897 "To a rag and a bone and a hank of hair," it is implied that Kipling's vampire is realistic, thus mostly made up.

Tip: Typically, humans have four cuspids in their mouth. Two on the bottom, and two on the top left and right side of the mouth.

These are the sharpest, longest teeth, they have a pointed edge and have been called "vampire teeth" by some Writers.

Perhaps Juliet in William Shakespeare's play: Romeo and Juliet could be described by some people as a vampire of the imagination. Does William Shakespeare describe physical traits that would support this claim or unusual interpretation? Do the characters act in ways that may influence, or inspire, future imaginative vampire stories?
