In the story I'm writing, there are vampires. I'm trying to figure out how humans turn into vampires. Right now, the way it happens is if a human gets vampire blood in a main vein/artery. It makes its way to the heart and changes them from there. I'm not sure if I want to stick with that, though. Does anyone have any ideas for alternative ways I could use? I don't want to copy word-for-word the methods used in other vampire stories, I'd like it to be at least a bit unique if possible. Any help would be appreciated!
(Note: Sorry if this is in the wrong place! I'm new to this website, so I just went with magic since vampires are magical creatures in my story.)
