MIDNIGHT SUN on Hold Because Stephenie Meyer ‘Burned Out on Vampires’

Stephenie Meyer

Twilight fans anxious for Stephenie Meyer to finish writing Midnight Sun—a retelling of Twilight from Edward’s perspective—are just going to have to be patient.

Meyer recently granted an interview to four Twilight fan sites, and addressed the Midnight Sun issue. She says, “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.”

Meyer put the book on hold after the first part was leaked onto the Internet. But now that fans have had a taste of Midnight Sun, they are desperate for more. Meyer says in the interview that she gets asked about the book wherever she goes. She admits that part of the reason the project is on hold is her stubbornness.

Meyer: 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 three year old, you want to be like “I’m gonna do what I wanna do!” Yah. “You’re not the boss of me!

I’m as anxious as anyone for Midnight Sun, but I can understand her reluctance to finish the project. Having her partial manuscript leaked online must have felt like such a violation. The good thing is that Meyer sounds open to finishing Midnight Sun eventually, and that’s good enough for me.

Are you anxious for Midnight Sun? Or are you willing to cut Stephenie Meyer some slack?

By the way, if you haven’t read the draft of Midnight Sun, it’s available on Stephenie Meyer’s website.
