Reading a masterpiece, to like and to know it by heart is a thing, but always, one doesn’t know how this materpeice came to the world, how it was thought up, created by its author. For what is the first book in the saga, Twilight, Stephanie wrote in only three months, and this is short for a book of this volume. While working on writing it, she didn’t sleep much, and worked on it mainly after taking care of her children (? Not sure about that sentence). She wrote every night. The other books in the saga took longer to write, and according to the other intervies, wrote less and less quickly. Finally, Tentation occupied five months of her life, contrary to a year for Revelation (I don’t know which books received which titles in France, so fill in the blanks if you know which books took how long ☺ )
Second paragraph on the first page (this gives you an idea):
Now that you know how Stephanie Meyer proceeded to write, it remains a large question how she came up with the general idea and history of vampires. Also as astonishing is the idea of how Twilight came to her in a dream in June 2003 and that from that came the thirteenth chapter in the book. This book was written without real preparation. The rest came to her because Stephanie continued to make alive these persons so that she would know what their destinies would be. She acknowledges herself, that often times history takes a step and imposes itself. When one asks her who are the authors who inspire her in her life and her writing, Meyer responds that there are two: Shakespeare and Orson Scott Card. She also really likes the style of their writing, and their marvelous face to face reactions. But has Stephanie put this in her characters? Yes and no, she says. No character truly represents it, but they all started from it. Certainly characters resemble all kinds of people that he knows, like her friends and Bella. She also adds that the werewolf Paul is near to her son who shares the same name, but that wasn’t intentional. On the contrary, she frequently has the issue of naming her characters like those in her family. It’s all the same Edward who is the character that she understands the best and she is the closest to in the element of his fictional character.
After the success of twilight, she retraces the history of bella’s life in Forks, whom teenagers all over the world envy; the author more in the style of writing, broke out with a new writing project, Midnight Sun. The name doesn’t “challenge you” (literal meaning, can’t figure out the idiom)? However this book is very judicious and already has a certain buzz on the internet because it is the telling of Twilight, retold from the point of view of the overly tortured vegetarian vampire, Edward cullen.
The stolen manuscript:
The idea to write the first book of the saga from Edward’s point of view isn’t recent. Stephenie had begun writing this well before writing the last book, Breaking Dawn. The author had given a copy of the manuscript to Robert Pattinson during the filming of the first chapter of Twilight so that he could totally analyze and impersonate the complicated character. If the young actor knew so well the role that he had, it was though this book (I think that’s the gist). He said in an interview that he adored this version and wanted to read it through till the end. Midnight sun is destined to know the same success as the rest of the saga, if this is not a disadvantage. Moreover, like all the preceding books, the fans could read the first chapter of the book on the official website of Stephenie Meyer. The buzz was there. Only this story didn’t happen like the author had hoped, and the worst thing that she feared ended up happening. An individual introduced herself into the home of a young girl and stole the manuscript. The incident, already dramatic, didn’t stop there, when several hours later, the fist 12 chapters of this book appeared for downloading on the web. The author was very angry and disappointed , betrayed, tehn left the public a note on her site that she was very sad and discouraged at the incident. She made the fair decision to pause with the vampires and didn’t finish writing the end. She told everyone her decision and was not definitive how long it would be before she would have the courage to write the end of the book. In order to get rid of the illegal downloading, she decided to offer a free legal download of the first 12 chapters on her site. While reading, we can understand the spirit of the young vampire and see he is very tortured and complex, and also has been very alone. We see in this book that she writes the exact same dialogue between characters as in Twilight. The presence of his family is not really a comfort. Moreover, there are only four people that he refuse to listen to; preferring to listen to hearing the thoughts of all of the students. This day, his interest is peaked when one of the students, Jessica, is talking to a new student about the rumors about the Cullens. The young man quickly tries to give himself something to do (??). Strangely he can’t listen to the thoughts of Bella Swan. Frustrated, Edward finds her odor irresistible and wants to kill her and drink her blood. For an entire hour he has to sit next to her in biologie, and he thinks of different plants to kill her….enter his random thoughts about why me, why me, can I do this? Etc. (end of second page)
