New York: ‘Twilight’ author Stephenie Meyer has revealed that she is no longer excited by ‘Vampires’ and wants to take a break from the genre.
With release of the latest instalment of the ‘Twilight series, ‘Eclipse’, the author has focussed only on answering specific questions from the readers.
Two years ago, it was leaked that Meyer has finished 12 rough chapters of an unfinished novel called ‘Midnight Sun’, retelling the ‘Twilight” story, except this time from Edward’s perspective, not Bella’s.
And when the word of the novel-in-progress got out, the writer tried to divert all the attention it was getting, and simply posted it all on her web site.
“I know that’s what everyone cares about,” the New York Post quoted Meyer as telling bloggers who met her personally.
“I also know that the right answer would be for me to say, ‘Oh yeah, it’s done! And it’ll be out next month!’ But that’s not true. What’s true is that I’m really burned out on vampires. And I don’t want to write it badly,” she said.
“I want to wait until I’m excited about the material again, and I’m excited about Edward, and that it’s something that’s motivating. You know, when a story is keeping me up at night, and I’m waking up at four in the morning and thinking ‘Yes! That is what is what should happen in this moment!’
“So right now it feels like homework, it really does. And when things feel like homework they go very, very slowly for me. You know, I have my share of human stubbornness and I have to tell you, it’s a little bit hard when people are like, ‘This is the only thing you can do, and it’s the only thing we care about!’ And, you’re kind of like a 3-year-old, you want to be like ‘I’m gonna do what I wanna do!’ Yeah. ‘You’re not the boss of me!’” she added.
