Hello all! As our director of online content Jess Zafarris sets sail to new adventures in New York City, I'll be here every week to share a new writing prompt with you. Like you, I am also a writer searching the world around me for new and interesting topics to spark my creativity.
Writing Prompt: The Variants of Vampires
While most famous vampires like Count Dracula and Edward Cullen are known for sucking blood, there are other types of vampires who seem to survive by consuming other resources. Count Chocula's purpose seems to be sucking the boringness out of kids' morning routines. Sesame Street's Count von Count has an insatiable thirst for counting rather than blood. Real-life energy vampires like the microwave suck up sufficient electricity when not in use.
Think of an alternative vampire that survives on something other than blood. Write a story or scene based on this character.
