Twilight author Stephenie Meyer has had enough of vampires. Meyer stopped working on the fifth book in the series, ‘Midnight Sun’, when the incomplete manuscript was leaked online. Now she says she is “burned out on vampires” and will likely not finish the book any time soon. Meyer said, “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. 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. That should disappoint everyone!”Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
