I know I’m taking a big risk (risk of death by stake through the heart…) by writing this post. And it’s a risk I’m willing to take. So bring on the comments!!
Stephanie Meyer was on Ellen today and she really rubbed me the wrong way. She came out acting like she had never picked up a pen and paper before, suddenly had a dream and ta dum! Twilight + 4 books were born.
Ellen: “But had you written before, ever?”
Stephanie: “No, no.”
Stephanie: Nervously giggles
C’mon Stephanie. You must have written something before Twilight. You have a Bachelor’s Degree in English from BYU. The bio on your own Official Site says so. This was taken from the BYU English Majors Requirement page:
4. Because upper-division English courses require substantial writing, it is strongly recommended that students complete their Advanced Written and Oral Communications requirement as they begin their first upper-division courses, preferably in the second semester of their sophomore year.
Substantial writing. Hmm. I know you really meant to say “Other than the course work I did in college along with the other projects I’ve worked on that I didn’t have luck getting published before I became famous, I haven’t ever written.” Right? I don’t know…something about the entire interview just bugged me. Blah. Did anyone else see it? What did you think?
