She was around two years old, that age where children thought, if they covered their eyes and couldn’t see you, you couldn’t see them. It was a strange age for a vampire.

Her minder, a tall, slender woman—her mother before, perhaps—seemed barely able to rein in the tike, who tried to bite anyone who passed: a dog, the man holding the leash, women in skirts, their exposed ankles enticing. She caught me watching her and gave me a faint smile, a bit of fang showing.

Kids these days, she seemed to say. What can you do?

Some people's eyes are actually amazing. I know two people with amazingly piercing blue eyes and a few more people with amazingly deep brown eyes. You'd think brown eyes'd be warmer than blue ones, personalitywise, but I think they're both the same. Though some with icy eyes can still be icy, then can also be as warm as fire. You can get lost in both of them, and especially the blue ones can see right into your soul, at least that's what it feels like. Blue or Brown? Also, people with grey eyes most definitely don't have a grey personality.

The writing hour: a specific period of time set aside for the specific purpose of writing. It’s rather like writing 100 words a day. It provides a focus and a framework. During the writing hour you sit with pen and paper, a typewriter or in front of a computer. If choosing the latter the internet needs to be disconnected. Idle web browsing is not an option. If nothing is written during that hour it doesn’t matter. What matter’s is the time spent in process. But then words being what they are, the chances are they’ll tumble out at some point.
