On Saturday night, we went out with some friends to see What We Do in the Shadows, a mockumentary about a group of vampire roommates. It was pretty funny, and impressively creative.
There was only one problem. I’d been reading for days about psychological need versus moral need in John Truby’s The Anatomy of Story. One of these is something the character lacks which affects only himself; the other (I can’t remember which is which) is a lack which affects those around him.
So, yes. I spent Saturday night trying to determine the moral and psychological needs of vampires.
Does this sort of thing happen to other people?
