I’ve been buckling down to study the craft of writing. I’m currently working my way through Characters, Emotion & Viewpoint by Nancy Kress and Plot & Structure by James Scott Bell. The latter I’m using to tighten up my story structures. There’s a lot of really good stuff in both books. Thus far, I’d highly recommend them if you want to hone your skills.
I seem to be on a vampire kick. I get on them on occasion. When that happens, I can’t seem to get enough of the movies, TV shows and books that contain vampires. Last night I watched the first episode of Blood Ties. I bought the DVD, since the show has been cancelled. It made me miss ‘Henry’ so much. I then popped in Dracula 2000 with Gerard Butler. Man, there are just some people who make me melt when they pop in the fangs. Sigh. My top favorite ‘vampire actors’ are: Kyle Schmid, Gerard Butler, Stuart Townsend, Alex O’Loughlin, and Frank Langella. I’m sure had I seen Buffy the Vampire Hunter, I would add Angel and Spike to that list. Perhaps someday…
If I was going by book characters, it would have to be Bones. Jeaniene Frost created a winner when she invented him.
Who is your favorite fanged one?
