More vampire aMUSEment
At least the ones on TV. Specifically, Damon from Vampire Diaries - and Eric off of True Blood. (Edward's too sparkly pretty for me - I prefer the bad boys.)
My obsession casual interest in these two fanged hotties isn't entirely frivolous. As last week's muse, Damon truly stepped up to the plate. Despite my laptop completely dying, I finished a record number of revisions on ABSOLUTION, reviewed several chapters for my crit partner and roughed out plot outlines for two NEW projects. (Rocky and Kyle, please stop rolling your eyes...)
In fact, Damon was such a perfect muse avatar, I considered keeping him for one more week.
But after death threats from rabid fans playing catch-up and watching three episodes of True Blood in a row last night (Thanks, Karen!), it's Eric FTW. (Admit it, you're ALSO on Team Eric, no?)
Admittedly, Eric's got a much tougher job than Damon had last week. I'm back at the day job after three weeks off and as always, there's a lot on my plate. I'm excited about how several of my projects are shaping up - including the completed first draft of a fun and fabulous kid's story about canola - and I need Eric in top shape if I want to keep up this crazy momentum.
Based on some of the footage I saw on True Blood last night, I'd say Eric's form is pretty damn tip top.
