Writer's Block: Twilight is nearing  
How do you feel about the upcoming Twilight film? Are you a fan or a critical bystander?

I have never read the books or seen the movies. Frankly, I don't want to.

Now, don't get me wong, but some things that I have read about vampires in mythology does not coincide with Meyers' books. Like I said, I neve read or seen Twilight, but there is such things as Wikipedia.

Here are my questions:

1. Vampires cannot stay in the sunlight without burning up. Since when can they do that and "sparkle"? And give me a break! Sparkle?! That's crazy. There the classic villians. Since when do they sparkle.

2. Since when do they feel love? They're dead. End of story.

3. I just don't get it. Since when did something that was suppose to strike fear in people's hearts become so...romantic? I say "romantic" for lack of a better word.

But I don't have anything against Twilight fans. Though some of them are damn scary and obsessive, some aren't. Like my best friend - a Twilight fan (though not so obsessive. She knows my opinion and I hers so we just leave it at that.

I encouage anyone to give me there opinion. I know that I am opening myself up to pitchforks, but...oh well.

I don't think Meyer has a patent on that one. Dracula loved Mina (in a sick and twisted way). Barnabas Collins was in love with someone on Dark Shadows. Nick Knight loved both Janette and Natalie on Forever Knight. Angel loved Buffy.:)

3. I just don't get it. Since when did something that was suppose to strike fear in people's hearts become so...romantic? I say "romantic" for lack of a better word.

That's 90% of the fantasy market and 70% of the romance market these days.:)

Good points. I guess it's just me. I enjoy eading the vampire myth, but today's fans have twisted it a little too much for me.

Dracula was my first vampire. I guess he just set the standard for me and nobody else can change that (I guess).

That's 90% of the fantasy market and 70% of the romance market these days.:)

It's officially then. My life has a lack of romance. Though fantasy is one of my fave genres.

I need to get out more.

Oh, there are some really good books, and then there are some stinkers. But it's worth wading through.
