"The first sequel I wrote to Twilight—Forever Dawn—was もっと見る of the same. I wasn't planning a sequel any もっと見る than I was planning to write a book in the first place. Originally, Twilight had a もっと見る defined ending. But, when it was ended, I started 書く epilogues. After I'd written three epilogues, all of them over a hundred pages long, I realized I wasn't ready to stop 書く about Bella and Edward. One of those epilogues turned into Forever Dawn.
(People often ask me if I'm ever going to make Forever Dawn public. The answer is no. For one thing, it's not great—it's downright embarrassing in some places. However, some of the content will work as a loose outline for book four, so I can't tell あなた what happened, either.)
I was about three hundred pages into Forever Dawn when my life got turned upside down. Twilight was going to be published. People were going to read what I was writing. もっと見る specifically, young adults were going to be 読書 what I was writing. Unintentionally, I'd written a young adult novel. I realized pretty quickly that Forever Dawn did not follow the rules of YA. Because I was caught up in the story, I finished Forever Dawn anyway, knowing that it would never see the light of day; I gave it to my big sister as a birthday gift. And then I started on the real sequel."
