Nonhuman characters

How many times have I tried to write about two normal guys and ended up with writers block? I'm beating my head against the nearest wall in frustration because I'm stuck and the story is going nowhere fast. But then I throw a nonhuman character off in the mix... and watch that baby go! The story almost writes itself.

*shakes head*

To date I've managed to write one story that revolved around two normal guys. The story was Priceless. And through that story I had to beat Cupid over the head with a stick to keep him from taking over, lol. I ended up giving the little imp his own just to shut him up. Of course that didn't stop him from bugging me. Then Morpheus showed up and the fun continued, lol.

I've written about vampires, Greek Gods, the Angel of Death and space aliens. By the way, Dale and the gang said hey, lol. I have other things in the works with werewolves, mermen, alien with tentacles... a ghost floating around, lol. That's just to name a few. Oh yeah, and the young stories!

Why are some of us so... interested in nonhuman? Okay, the word obsesses came to mind, lol. I'll be the first to admit I'm obsessed! Is it the fangs? The moans and gasps of the intended victim as the vamp's teeth pierce the skin to drink? Is it the sexy werewolf that goes all alpha on his mate who begs for it harder?

Is it the abnormal strength some of these characters' have, and other abilities, us humans don't? That tail that can wiggle into the most interesting places, lol? Those big sexy wings? Then, of course, there's the romance and the hot m/m sex. LOL, goes without saying, right?

*fans self*

I don't know. But I do know that nonhuman is so much easier for me to write. I couldn't tell you which nonhuman character is a fav of mine; I like them all. Thank goodness there are plenty of folks out there like me that love this stuff, too!
