Red ScreamsSmiling at me, shiny silver teeth
Begging my wrist
For one chaste
Grinning at me, that evil smirk
Making my heart pound
So sharp so
I know I
And really I
Arm’s too full of blood
From attempts to
Join the stars.

The (Fictional) Vampire Bloodloss WorksheetThe (Fictional) Vampire Bloodloss Worksheet2 years ago in Other More Like This
First of all, I want to stress one thing here. This article is NOT about real vampires! I am a firm believer that there are real vampires out there and those people consume blood. They don't look/act like Dracula. They are rather ordinary and aren't making nightly kills in order to survive. This worksheet is for the many authors who are writing vampire stories where they need information as to how much blood their vampire characters will need to survive, and how much blood can be drained from their victims before they die.

Mary sue often refers to a young female protagonist and male "Mary Sues" are often called "Larry Stu".
From my experience most Mary Sues are written in non-published works usually by young writers especially in fan-fiction. However there are a few Mary Sue writers who are actually published (sadly). It shows a deep lacking to create perfect characters unless it's done for satirical purposes.
So why should you avoid writing Mary Sues? Simple, perfect is boring!
We don't like perfect, we don't want perfect! Ask anyone in a relationship to list the positives traits, charms and idiosyncrasies of their partner and I guarantee at least one will be something that is weird, annoying, bizarre
