Good practice for writing my Vampire Book, “The First, the Last, the Lonely”

Compulsory Listening: Jubilee Street

So Im writing a book, the book to end all books on Vampires, I’ve done so much research Im like Van Helsing over here…since I like you Im going to leak the opening line:

“long ago, when the nights were still dark, and the sun went around the earth, the devil walked among us”…

From the documentary 20,000 days on Earth:

Do you want to know how to write a song?

Songwriting is about counterpoint. Counterpoint is the key. Putting two disparate images beside each other and seeing which way the sparks fly.

Like letting a small child in the same room as… I don’t know… A Mongolian psychopath or something. And just sitting back and seeing what happens.

Then you send in a clown, say on a tricycle. And again you wait, and you watch. And if that doesn’t do it… You shoot the clown.

-Nick Cave-20,000 days on Earth
