Happy Birthday, Stephenie Meyer, born 24 December 1973.
- I feel like reading really defined me as a writer because I lived my life outside of my own body for so much of my life and I loved it. I’ve always been a reader. I think living all those stories served me to naturally take that next step to creating.
- What’s funny about that is when I was writing Twilight just for myself and not thinking of it as a book, I was not thinking about publishing, and yet at the same time I was casting it in my head. Because when I read books, I see them very visually.
- I had the easiest publishing experience in the entire world. I sent out fifteen courier letters to agents, got five no replies, nine rejections and one I want to see it. A month later I had an agent. Another month later I had a three book deal with Little Brown.
- I write best at night, no question. I can focus. You know you’re not getting any phone calls, I can shut everything down, and I’m just more creative at night.
- Sometimes ideas feel like they were already there, and that you’re just discovering them.
