If your claim to fame involves vampires, it’s not really ideal if they begin to bore you.
There are four books in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, but the author had planned to write a companion novel titled Midnight Sun that has been heavily desired by fans. While writing the book is still a priority, she’s hit a little bit of a snag. Frankly, Meyer is just sick of vampires.
Regarding her work on Midnight Sun, Meyer told TwilightSeriesTheories: “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.”
Midnight Sun is written from the perspective of Twilight‘s 104-year-old teenage idol vampire Edward Cullen to give a better idea of his character. Meyer says that writing it “feels like homework” and that 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!'” She doesn’t want to be typecast as that author that created a massively popular series about bloodsuckers that can passionately kiss.
Some might say that the lack of more Twilight is a good thing, while for others it’s either a guilty or non-guilty pleasure. If Meyer is sick of vampires, maybe she’ll write something new about, let’s say, emo Frankenstein teen idols instead? I hear guys stitched together from the body parts of random corpses can be really attractive to teenage girls.
