In the past two months, I've started several stories featuring psychopaths. One story features two psychopaths, both of whom think they're vampires. One story technically features a sociopath, but for the purpose of this post, I'm lumping psychopaths and sociopaths into the same little category. I've gotten a few ideas for shorter works that also feature crazies in one form or another.
I'm also, apparently, cursed. My creative writing teacher gave us a prompt the other day wherein she effectively had us draw a character type out of a hat and try to flesh out a character that fits the type. Guess what I drew? A psychopath.
Oy, oy, oy.
It started with the guy who thought he was a vampire. Then another one joined the party. And they just kept stacking up.
Sometimes I worry about my state of mind.
