The “Twilight” saga has brought fame and fortune to author Stephenie Meyer, but fans hoping for a new installment of the series, told from Edward’s point of view may be in for a long way.
Meyer began the story a few years ago, but reportedly stopped writing it when the first 12 chapters of the rough draft were leaked on-line.
Now it appears that Meyers may not take up the story again any time soon. She tells the web site TwilightSeriestheStories that she is burned out on vampires.
“”I know that’s what everyone cares about. I also know that the right answer would be for me to say ‘Oh yah, it’s done! And it’ll be out next month!’ But that’s not true,” she says. “It’s also not true that I’ve got a ton of work done on it, and that’s what I’m working on. What’s true is that I’m really burned out on vampires. And, I don’t want to write it badly. So 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 4 am in the morning and thinking ‘Yes! That is what should happen in this moment!’ Then that is when I can write with happiness! So, right now it feels like homework … it really does. And when things feel like homework they go very, very slowly for me.”
Added Meyer: “That should disappoint everyone!”
