Nerd Church - Rich Vamps: Dracula and The Blood of the Poor

 Warning: this is probably obvious, but we're gonna talk blood, death, and murder

'Rich Vamps: Dracula and The Blood of the Poor' with a background of a fancy hand - with a ring and everything - reaching for a wine glass

You ever notice that vampires are filthy stinking rich?

I was talking about this topic with Em @ The Paperback Princess a while back (...I can't find the conversation, but it exists, I'm sure! 😅):

You rarely see fiction or media with vampires who struggle to pay the bills

 - which does mean that they're in line to combine with a dozen or so other tropes to make romance novels titled 'The Alpha Bad-Boy Motorbike CEO Billionaire Daddy Vampire's Baby Surprise.' 

Apologies if that's the title of your novel - because I feel like this thing exists somewhere.

And if it didn't before, it does now 😅

But moving away from romance novels and things that would even make fanfiction writers wonder if you may have overdone the tropes...

Nerd Church - The Need To Read


'I feel the need... the need to read!'

- Anonymous bookish meme, based on a Top Gun reference

'The Need To Read' written across the pages of an open book which is spurting letters like confetti, because why not?

I'm a mood-reader.

I read every single day.

...I need to.

Friday Fics Fix - FrostIron Schmoop (Don't Judge Me!)

'“You mortals are truly horrendous at naming constellations.”'

'Fics Fix!' with purple background and white lightning bolt shape

This week's fanfiction is short and sweet.

I fully admit it - this be schmoopy af.

No angst as far as the eye can see. (...Which is highly unusual with me involved, obviously 😅)

Nerd Church - The Writer Diaries: Write Your Obvious

You're the only one of you.

( *Starts mentally singing ME! by Taylor Swift and Brendon Urie: 'I'm the only one of me! Baby, that's the fun of me!...'* Lol.)

Hooman-bean-brains are one of the most complex things in the known universe (I know, right? We're special!) and yours is just that: yours.

Write Your Obvious

No-one else's brain will ever work in exactly the same way as yours does.

We may come to the same conclusions or think along the same lines as someone else - but at the end of the day our brains are ours alone: entirely unique.
