Did you know you could already read the first chapter of Stephenie Meyer’s new book Midnight Sun about Edward?    Are you as excited to read it after reading Breaking Dawn?  I am excited to read a book from his point of view and I hope it will be as good as Twilight.  Here is what Stephenie has to say about it from her blog:  I also posted the link to the first chapter below:

Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) by vball * LoveR.

 

Midnight Sun is an exercise in character development that got wildly out of hand (as do many of my projects).

While I was procrastinating some real editing work (I’m always at my most creative when procrastinating), I started to wonder how the first chapter of Twilight would read if it were written from Edward’s perspective. There is so much more to his side of the story than there is to Bella’s in that first chapter. After all, Bella only knows that an incredibly gorgeous boy is looking at her funny. Meanwhile, Edward is suffering through one of the most momentous days of his very long life! First there’s the shock and frustration of not being able to hear Bella’s thoughts, then the wild, monstrous reaction to her scent, followed by the incredible expenditure of self-control that it takes to not kill her… His side of Bella’s first day at Forks High School is a hundred times more exciting than her own.

Though I didn’t have time to work on it right away, the idea of letting Edward have his chance to speak stuck with me. I couldn’t shake it. I found myself thinking his words in the middle of the night and jotting down phrases he would use while I was waiting in line at the post office. As soon as I finished my real work, I sat down and let Edward get his say.

Writing chapter one, “First Sight,” from Edward’s point of view was an exciting experience; I actually had my pulse racing as I typed. When I finished, I was truly pleased with my creation. Here was the other side of the story that no one knew. Here was the truth of what Edward had been through. I felt like I knew my Edward even better, and I was sure his dialogue would be more insightful in future novels. The end. Exercise over.

Ha ha. It wasn’t long before I was thinking about Edward in Alaska, Edward upon his return to Forks, Edward’s side of that fateful conversation in Biology… Chapter two started to write itself in my head, while I kept telling myself that I didn’t have time to write a book for fun when I had real books to write. (My mother seconded that opinion—she thinks I work too hard).

But when a story demands to be written, there’s no way to resist. And the more I wrote, the more I became convinced that Edward deserved to have his story told. At first I was planning to post it all here on my website, but I changed my mind for two reasons, the most important being that Edward’s version is much longer than Bella’s—Edward over-thinks everything. I’m not even half way done, and the page count is near three hundred. The second reason that I changed my mind is a little bit silly—I just would really love to have a pretty, matching, bound version of Midnight Sun to put beside Twilight on top of my desk. So I’m going to try to have it published as a complementary novel to Twilight. It will take a while, because I can only work on it between editing stints, but I hope that someday I’ll be able to see Midnight Sun on the bookstore shelves next to Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and etc… (Fueling my belief that Midnight Sun is worthy of publishing is my mother’s about face—after reading the first eleven chapters, she thinks it’s magic and says I should go for it.)

And here I was going to write just a short paragraph of introduction. You see what I mean about things getting out of hand?

Because I just can’t wait out the years it will take to reach publication for people to begin to understand Edward, here is my original character development exercise, Edward’s version of Bella’s first day at Forks High School, the first chapter of Midnight Sun*:

    I completely understand how you feel about Midnight Sun by the way you talk about it on your website. Of course you don’t want to write it now because your “suprise” was ruined. As a tremendous fan of your Twilight books, I support you 100% even if you don’t want to write it. (Although it would be nice if you did write more.)

  18. Dear stephenie meyer,

    Your writing is amazing. I’ve read all your books at least 5 times. Your writing has helped me with school and has givin me something to help me find out who I really am. I started to write my own stories. My mom thinks I am insane but it just shows how much you’ve made people comitted to your writing. Reading midnight sun has helped me get a better view od edward. Some people don’t understand edward and don’t have internet. It would be a shame for you to not finish writing this book. I know how it must feel to have someone post somthing you didn’t want them to see it’s happened to me. But you shouldn’t let something someone’s done stop you from playing the game or writing the book I guess. You are an amazing writer you should finish what you started not just for the fans but also for you and Your family

  19. heyy
    i just watned to say if you could continue with your book midnight sun i really enjoyed reading the first few chapters-maybe even more then the original twilight itself becuase of how we could read about what edward heard
    and becuase in twilight he would laugh randomly and you would wonder what he was laughing about-then in this book it has everything in it please contiue to write midnight sun

  20. shyanne says:

    i think you should finnish writting the story. I know you wanted it to be a suprise, but if you think about it, you did suprise people. When they found out the first coupple of chapters are like, they(even i) went nuts!!! I never expected another book to the series after finnishing Breaking Dawn. I think you should finnish writting it and publish it. Just be careful where you set it. Those chapters already ‘leaked’ are just a teaser to people. i understand that you would be upset, but you should finnish it for yourself and for your fans. They will still bye it, love it, and be SUPPRISED all at once. Hope you decide to finnish it someday.

    i totally understand the privacy issues. but being a famous author has to have it’s drawbacks right??? TO STEPHENIE MEYER:
    please understand that the twilight series you created (which is truly breathtaking) also created it’s DIE HARD FANS (considering me of course). Edward was always a mystery and never had his point of view. Bella and Jacob did. isn’t it unfair to let the readers see what actually is lurking beneath his gorgeous face??? all the blood thirst and admiration has to be REVEALED!!!! as a girl who has near death experiences (except i am totally vulnerable when it comes to suicide) and a freakshow at school i RELATE TO BELLA. excpet that in MY WORLD. there aren’t any Edwards (sigh, i just wish.) and we want to know more of the mysteries he keeps!!! you know from people’s point of view he never really shows what’s in him. and we really do wanna know. Stephenie, you’re talented you really are. ever think of a reason why twilight has a GAZILLION fans??? if you were us. you’d understand. we would kill just for you to make another series. the part where Edward explains. but i think we’ll survive if you finish MIDNIGHTSUN. please. please pease. on behalf of every DIE HARD FANS OF TWILIGHT. i am BEGGING YOU. PLEASE CONTINUE THE BOOK AND PUBLISH IT. for all the FANS of TWILIGHT may have the SAME PASSION i HAVE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS. i swear i HAVE NEVER been attached to a BOOK. it’s so. . . .BREATHTAKING. so please please a gazillion times please. CONTINUE MIDNIGHT SUN HAVE IT PUBLISHED THEN TAKE A GOOD LONG REST. your mom was right. you really do work too hard. but please FINISH this one last book!!! were all ENCHANTED!!! -pia

  22. Pleeeeeease finish stephanie! U are just an amazing author!!!! <3
