the vampire manifesto

February 23, 2012 § 4 Comments

I’ve compiled a document called the vampire manifesto which includes the two published already lists and the definitive guide to vampires that I also published earlier.

It is a document meant to make the reading more accessible to you, putting everything in one place and marking everything with appropriate sub-chapters.

You can get instant access to it, no e-mail or anything else required, except you having a PDF Reader installed on your computer, because it is a PDF.

    At the end of the manifesto , 3rd sentence just before the last “knew” should be “know”. There’s numerous errors like that in this story but quite small of a deal for whats important, is that its understandable.

      Thank you. I’ll fix that. I know there are, I’m constantly trying to revise everything. But I write so much it’s hard to keep track of everything, and sometimes spell checkers fail me.

    I admire your ability to speak in multiple languages and understand many languages. That is a very useful skill to have.
    There are a few English grammar errors through out the entire story.
    When reading, I ignore them and my mind replaces the words with what they should be when reading. I am able to rephrase the sentence and make sense of it. (remember me) is incorrect. you mean to say (remind me).
    I understand English is the hardest language to learn and master. It is difficult for me to learn a new language also. Especially now that I’m older. When I was younger (13) I taught myself french and wrote in french with ease. Sadly, I can not remember a word of french to this day. At (15) I learned Spanish and sign language. I remember those 2 language pretty well. I want to learn japanese and german but I find it too challenging.
    I will continue to read your story.

      The truth is I used to think that I speak English fairly well but this blog started proving me otherwise. However, I have come to the conclusion that even native speakers make such kind of mistakes more than they would want to admit. Most other books, articles or journals that you read are thoroughly spell-checked twice or three times before being published. I never spell-check anything. I just sit-down, start writing and when I finish the last word I press publish, without reviewing anything. I do this because every time I did try to re-read or review anything, I ended up changing it and tweaking it and just distorting everything to the degree that those weren’t my thoughts anymore, but instead my brain was forcibly trying to make it look like a well-written story. This is not a book, nor a well written story. It’s something that I would tell you with the exact same words over the course of a few days, during a face-to-face chat. I want to use the same words, the same type of expression, I want to write my thoughts and I can’t do that if I go back and review everything. I just can’t stop at fixing just the spelling errors and nothing else. So for me, it’s a necessary evil.
