After the last post here, I ruefully tweeted that my early New Year's resolution is to blog about other topics than how bad I am at blogging. To that end, I've decided to try writing a short post every day based on a prompt (starting with the ones here, so long as they're any good). Today's is very easy: to write about three blog posts I've read and loved this week, and encourage you to read them.
Last night, David asked me for some ideas for a video game. I did not have any. Then I dreamed an entire concept overnight, and here it is.
Cross-posted from Tumblr, someone else's thoughts on vampires as a metaphor for the oppressed vs. the privileged, and my musing on what this means for the novel I'm currently writing. Other interesting reflections on the same blog post: this piece on the vampire's historic status as stand in for the aristocracy, plague and foreigners, this piece about its shift to representing the marginalalised and creative in the 1970s/80s.
