All of this reading about vampires made me decide I wanted to write something about vampires. I also decided I wanted to write a sword & sorcery story featuring the aforementioned vampires. So, I did what I often do. I sat down and I started writing with no clear idea of where I was going. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't. And I wrote and I wrote and I wrote. Something resembling a story has begun to emerge, but I think there will be more rewrites than usual on this one. Gonna have to do some cutting. That, however, will wait until I'm actually done, and I'm a good ways from the end. So anyway, writing is a strange exercise. It's worth doing, but it never seems to get any easier.
