Stephenie Meyer To Write fifth ‘Twilight’ Book Someday?
November 10, 2008 by tcgames
Stephenie Meyer, author of the hugely popular Twilight series of books, told reporters that she’s leaving the door open to writing a fifth volume, Midnight Sun, though she previously said she’d put it on hold indefinitely.
“People are going to forget about it,” Meyer said in a news conference in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Nov. 8. “It’s going to go away, and that’ll be the time when I sneak back in and give it a try again. But it’s going to have to be after everything is [over]. It’s not writing in a fishbowl, because I can’t work that way.”
Meyer earlier said she would put off finishing Midnight Sun–a retelling of the first Twilight book from the point of view of vampire Edward Cullen–after an early draft of the book’s first chapters was released on the Internet without her authorization. Meyer–whose books have sold more than 17 million copies–later posted the draft on her official Web site.
“Midnight Sun is not on my schedule right now,” Meyer said while promoting the upcoming film adaptation of her first book. “It’s part of my writing process that, for me to really write a story–and like I was saying before–I can’t think about what other people want and what other people are thinking and what the editing is going to be and what the expectations are when I’m writing. Because it’s paralyzing to do that. You really can’t put a word on the page. I have to be very alone with a story. It has to be just me and what’s happening, and I just can’t feel that way about it right now.”
The Twilight movie opens Nov. 21.
