This extraordinary one-act drama deftly explores the evolution of the centuries-old vampire myth.

I will have two hours this afternoon, dedicated to completing this script. Two hours. I have most of the pieces parts for the final scene ... it is so hard to finish with Twilight and be serious. Everything else is so hard-core ... but it's hard-core cheese, isn't it? I mean ... I'm writing about vampires.

Ends are neatly tied, because people will want that. Secrets are revealed, because people will want that. But knowing the end makes it difficult to write the beginning (of this one scene.) Each subsequent scene has been harder than the last, I guess that is to be expected. How to make Dracula follow naturally from The Vampyre, and so on. I am glad they have a unifying thread, rather than just disparate one-acts.

Two hours. To think like a teenage girl.

Hate is an angry thing. Hate destroys everything. Hate is the absence of all kindness, sympathy and understanding. If you are upset, be specific about what is bothering you. Please do not use the word "hate." - Pengo's pedantic advice to a small child.
