Well hello again!
It is Friday and the weekend is upon us, how wonderful! 😉
Now, I know that it is unusual, but I have a dilemma!
Obviously, when writing a book, especially something fictional, one has to make sure that not only are the facts correct, but that the target audience are going to be happy with what you write! I am really struggling with certain aspects of Equilibrium….namely, what can vampires these days do and not do!??
Over the last twenty years or so, the public love affair with vampires has grown phenomenally (although I expect it always existed, but was somewhat ‘underground’ if you pardon the pun!) but with it has come certain arguments: Can they survive drinking synthetic/animal blood? Do they still need inviting into your house? Can you see them in mirrors and photos? Do they sleep in coffins? etc.
Writing fiction obviously gives you the room to stretch these concepts and I have spoken about them before on my blog, but in doing my research for this book, I cannot help but continue to trip over the slating that Stephenie Meyer is getting over the ‘sparkly’ issue.
So, I need some help.
It’s a simple question: Can vampires go out in the day light or not?
Is it acceptable for them to venture out on days where it isn’t sunny? I am asking my vamp friends for their opinion on this and hope that the answer will aid me with the writing of my book.
Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are.
PS. This is a COMPLETELY random tedious link, but check out Katy Perry’s new song: Teenage Dream.
Let’s go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance, until we die
You and I, will be young forever
Kinda appropriate don’tcha think? 😉 x
