Sorry so long, but I've been under the weather for the past month or so, and when I'm like that, my imagination evades me. I mean, I find it hard to even write a tweet.
Anyway, I'm lying in bed and there's nothing on, so I watch Twilight: New Moon, since I've never seen any of those movies before.
Wow. No wonder EL James wrote fan-fic out of the characters. She was probably dying for something--anything--to happen. I haven't read The Book yet, but I hope her characters have a little more life in them. I guess teenagers find it romantic to lie about in a meadow staring at each other for hours.
Even when there was some action, it wasn't exciting. Bella jumps off a cliff into the sea and the werewolf boy Jacob, who has a huge crush on her, saves her. You'd think at least that would evoke some kind of emotion out of them. He just says in a normal voice not to jump off a cliff anymore and she doesn't even cry or look shaken up by her near-drowning.
On the upside, I hear Stephanie Meyers' books are much better than the movies, and we all know how movie-makers tend to screw up screen versions of good books.
I guess my point is, all you fan-fic writers should keep writing about the characters you love. Who knows? One day you might have a best-seller on your hands, too.
