I want to write a Vampire novel, and i have basic ideas and plots that I LIKE and want to work with. I'm trying to switch them a little, because almost everything about Twilight I do love and would include in some way in my own novel (love story, Vampires being a secret, etc). i bring up Twilight for obvious reasons--despite what people think, and a couple of the books aren't that good, but I love the movies-- they are a mega success and worked for one reason or another. When I look around online there is backlash against more Vampire novels with the 'been there read that' attitude, but I do believe it's all in how you write, present it, and any differences you create. Good writing is just good writing. I don't think Twilight has ruined it for future writers of Vampire genre, if anything I see it as what people seem to want and love. I don't understand how Vampires (or Zombies, or Werewolves) will ever get old. but that's just me. I also think Twilight is successful because it came along when Vampires were at a lull, and differences that she did have (no fangs, sparkling) were just different enough. Plus, Bella and Edward had good chemistry, which helped, not to mention a love triangle with Jacob and the Werewolf/Vampire riff was good too. And last of all, luck. But I'd like to ask if anyone is tired of Vampires? Do you like Vampire love stories? Or like them as killers to be hunted? If you like Twilight, why? I worry about adding my Vampires to the pile, but writing about something I love want is what makes me want to write.
