Stephenie Meyer Topics
It is hard to find time for everything. Its a balancing act, and I dont always do it perfectly. I make a conscious effort to spend time with my kids every day after school, and to read to them at bedtime. My office is in the middle of the house, and it has no walls. Im always in sight, and they know Im there if they need me. My friends (who are very cool people) totally understand about my limitations, and they welcome me with open arms whenever I finally stager out of my hole to join them.
The most important thing you can do is to write for yourself.
I self-edit all the time when Im writing. I enjoy reading the story over and over, tweaking it as I go.
It took me three months of super-obsessive behavior to complete. I did no plotting or planning, I just let the story tell itself, and my only challenge was typing fast enough to keep up.
I wrote Twilight at about the pace of a runaway semi on a steep down slope. It took me three months of super-obsessive behavior to complete. I did no plotting or planning, I just let the story tell itself, and my only challenge was typing fast enough to keep up.
Reading was really my only training in fiction writing. I never took a class or read a book on how to write. I just absorbed the basics from reading thousands of other peoples stories.
To me a story is a story...I dont even think about where it might belong until long after its written.
Sundays are my no-work days. Its all God and family.
I got a degree in English from Brigham Young University, but I didnt study creative writingjust literature. I was too much a coward to write my own stories and let people see what was going on inside my head. One of the biggest challenges of my writing career has been getting past that shyness.
I didnt expect the novels to be a success with anyone, so no. However, Im not surprised that there is an adult following. I wrote the first book with no other audience in mind besides my own 29-year-old self. It seems natural to me that Twilight appeals to other women my age.
Ive lived most of my life in Phoenix, Arizona, and Im addicted to the desert heat. I have two sisters and three brothers; I loved being part of a big family, and were all still really close. I live down the street from my mom and dad and I talk to them on the phone probably once a day. Ive been married for thirteen years to a boy I grew up with, and we now have three boys of our own. My favorite hobbies used to be reading, drawing, and scrap-booking, but now I mostly just write.
Twilight, again. Another ending. No matter how perfect the day is, it always has to end.
I can't read other people's vampires. If it's too close, I get upset; if it's too far away, I get upset. It just makes me very neurotic.
I am Switzerland. I refuse to be affected by territorial disputes between mythical creatures.
I've developed this humongous love for 12-year-old girls! They have the best questions, and they're so into the stories. You really can't write for a better audience. I say to all other authors: If you're not writing for teenage girls, you're missing out on a lot of love.
Writing isn't like math; in math, two plus two always equals four no matter what your mood is like. With writing, the way you feel changes everything.
I grew up in a community where it was not the exception to be a good girl. It was sort of expected. And all of my friends were good girls too, and my boyfriends were good boys. Everybody was pretty nice. And that affects how I write my characters. There aren't very many bad guys in my novels. Even the bad guys usually have a pretty good reason for the way they are, and some of them come around in the end. I don't see the world as full of negatives.
The only time I really did any research on vampires was when the character Bella did research on vampires. Because I was creating my own world, I didn't want to find out just how many rules I was breaking.
With Rob actually, we sat down and talked about Edward's character before the filming started and I'd just come in and met everyone. It wasnt an argument, but we actually disagree on his character. I'd be like, 'No, this is how it is.' Hes like, 'No, it's definitely this way.' And the funny part about it, you know, is here we are arguing about a fictional character and yet in the performance he did what he wanted and yet it was still exactly what I wanted. So that was really cool.
When I write, I forget that it's not real. I'm living the story, and I think people can read that sincerity about the characters. They are real to me while I'm writing them, and I think that makes them real to the readers as well.
