#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter in #Stockholm

Vampires are older in Northern Europe. They are closer ethnically to Eastern European vampires. They dwell in darkness more both literally and figuratively. Today I saw this and wondered if evil can be captured in stone.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and the mendacity of modernity

The time is here. It is the time of chaos, where all hangs in the balance. I'm not being overly dramatic because we are past the point of retreating to our bucolic, halcyon days of uncaring. We now must engage and fight back against the monster of modernity that overtakes us more each day. I must kill it for myself, and you must kill it for you. We have no other choice, my friends.

I write what's inside my head #amwriting #writerslife #KeithScott #CharlotteProtest

Charlotte is rioting and rightfully so. A man was murdered by the police, and the police are covering it up. It is wrong. Good police are out there. I know many, but the bad ones should be run out of town.

I don't know what happened in Charlotte other than a man was murdered, and he didn't need to be. Life is precious. Death is forever, and that's too long.

RIP Keith Scott

I write what's inside my head because it's good #writerslife #amwriting

It is worth reading. It is gets better the more I write it. So get ready unwashed masses. The torrent is coming, and it will wash down on you soon. You will forget everything else you have ever read. I know this is true.

It needs to be said, and I'm the one to say it.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and we may be doomed

They will come for you in the night and in the day. And there will be no mercy. They will unleash decades of hate on you. It will get worse.  

Be ready.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter because we all are

We are all vampire hunters, but some of us know it. Others don't or they deny it to themselves. Monsters take many different forms, but they are all blood suckers. They take the life out of you by occupying your mind. This is where they defeat you. The physical pales in comparison to the mental domination.

Don't let them control you. Kill them. Kill all of them.

William Magnum, vampire hunter

I write what's in my head so you better listen #amwriting #writerslife

Writers are a funny bunch. They say what they want, don't care if they piss people off, but then they want to be read. Or that's me. We all carry the disruptive forces of change in our heads and dangerous ideas. I think the "dangerous ideas" tend to be the best and safest way to live because they are cathartic. They are to me.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and saying it without poetry

It has been a few days since my last confession, and I am not sure what I am confessing to. Or if what I say is a secret, but it feel secret until I say it.

We live in fucked up times, my friends. My language is coarse, but it is true. It is inarticulate at times, but it resonates. Truth, stark and brutal, is better without poetic verse attached to it like a cheap, wilting flower caught in the last rays of summer sun. Everything has already been said, so why not be direct? Take out the bullshit.

I have no time for bullshit and pretty words. Meaning needs to infuse every word, or it is just a word and no better than a speck of dirt.

William Magnum, vampire hunter

I write what's in my head even when I'm editing what I previously wrote #amwriting #writerslife

It may not look like much at first, but it is becoming something. Always becoming and never fully formed. That's writing. It is never finished, but it may be improved or in the process of being improved. I live between the beginning and the infinite. I enjoy the in between because that's where life is. This is where my truth is.

I write what's in my head to fill the void on the page #amwriting #writerslife

Pages are meant to be filled with words and drawings. Blank shouldn't be. Blank is a beginning and not a final stage. So I write it down for posterity. I spill out whatever bullshit I feel that day. Sometimes it makes sense. Sometimes it is senseless, but it always is...

It is better to be than to not be. So I let it be and exist inside and outside of my head.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and dealing with haters

Haters exist. Some have fangs and some don't. But they are there. They often go unnoticed until they surface, filling your nose with their putrid stench. My strategy is to avoid them. If I can't avoid them I destroy them. You may not have that luxury, but you can always eviscerate them through words. Words can be your weapon just as a silver stake is mine.

Stay vigilant, my friends. Keep fighting.

William Magnum, vampire hunter

I write what's in my head, but sometimes I don't write it down #amwriting #writerslife

I don't always get to write it down, but I compose it in my head, whatever's in my head. It all comes out eventually like a sock in the wash. I am that sock, and eventually I match something or remain alone in my thoughts. My thoughts might as well not be thought until I write them down for a constant reader to read them.

Butchering of trees #environment #globalwarming

Why is this necessary? More destruction of the environment for shitty apartments.


 


 

#Confessionsofavampirehunter and the approach of Autumn

They days shorten, and the night grows longer. Evil worms its way into our world(s) again, my friends. Darkness has loomed over the land since that man with rat pelt hair came on the scene and threatened our nation in whatever dimension you are in. Donald Trump or Ronald Drum--he is the same but in different places that are also the same.

Both most be stopped. Both are evil.

Let's stop them at the ballot box.

William Magnum, vampire hunter

I write what's in my head stridently #amwriting #writerslife

My acid pen burns many a brain, and that's by design. Thoughts are explosive and offensive to some. When written down they become more real--too real for some, who would prefer them unthought and unspoken if thought. But that's not me. I won't shut up, and I get it out everyday. That's who I am and how I express myself. And there is truth in that. We all strive for truth, but we have different definitions of truth.

Thank them for what? (it's their job)

Why should I thank them? They get paid, and they get benefits.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and keeping up the fight #amwriting #writerslife

Read Fight Club. It is necessary. Everyone should read that book. That's how you should approach life. Be a nihilist in a good way. Believe in yourself and those you care about but not much else. Fight when you need to fight be it with your firsts or your words.

There are many monsters out there, my friends. You don't need my fiction and my reality to tell you that. You have your own reality.

Keep fighting. It is necessary.

William Magnum, vampire hunter

I write what's in my head as the day rolls on into the endless ocean of time and all that #amwriting #writerslife

We are but drops in an infinite sea. Sometimes we float to the top, and sometimes we sink to the bottom. Eventually we evaporate or so my hackneyed metaphor goes. We end unless we prove we were here. So we write it down--some of us do.

Keep writing it down.

I write what's in my head like the world is ending (because it will one day) #amwriting #writerslife #flashfiction

Dwelling in my imagination is one of my favorite pastimes, and it should be your's too. This assumes you are imaginative, and we all are. It is a question of degree, but you have to work your imagination through writing, getting your thoughts out. Some write stories, and some write about other things, though I suppose everything is a story to some extent. Like the famous Hemingway line, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." That's a story. It is called "flash fiction."

I love flash fiction, short stories, and full lengthy novels. I've written and published all three.

#ConfessionsofaVampireHunter and our odd times #amwriting #writerslife

The enemy went to Mexico yesterday. A shit show unfolded, and it continued into Phoenix. Ronald Drum in another world and by any other name would be called Donald Trump. But this real world Drum is worse. Trump is worse than Drum.

I straddle both your world and my world. I am a go-between, but  you have the same problems in your world that I do in mine. Humans are humans; vampires are vampires; and witches are witches.

I've hunted all three.

Stay safe my friends in whatever world you inhabit or whatever dimension on that world.
