So what is a fleam?
: a sharp lancet formerly used for bloodletting
In case you were wondering about the name of this blog.... A fleam is a device used for bloodletting. It can be a simple blade of a set of posts with differences sized points on the side of them. They are normally used to make a rapid puncture over a major vein and let out blood. Bloodletting was thought to improve health by balancing the vital humors of the body. As a writer of paranormal fiction, going by the pen name "Veinglory", The Fleam seemed like an apt name for my blog about vampire fiction.
