Stephenie Meyer is my role model... I love Twilight!


Now let me tell you why. She does not write very well. Her descriptions and imagery are poor, the plot has some clear faults, and it is not very well edited. But none of that matters. What Stephenie Meyer has given us is a four book saga that is incredible regardless. It is predictable from beginning to end. Time and time again she will use the same words to describe the scene. At the end of the day though, it is still my favorite book. And this is why she is my role model. It doesn’t matter to millions of people that the book is not well written. Many people have read it... And everyone loves it. Tell someone to read Twilight and then describe briefly the plot -- you will find many skeptics. Have them actually read it and they will undoubtedly fall in love. I can’t describe it really. It is not well written, yet still Twilight is the only book I have ever read three times! Seriously. When my little sister told me to read Twilight a year and a half ago I wasn’t sure it was for me. I figured I was too old to enjoy it. Nonetheless, as the movie was to come out that Thanksgiving I read it. By chapter 3 there was no going back. My literary world was changed forever. Stephenie Meyer proved with Twilight that it doesn’t really take writing talent to create a good book, it merely takes an amazing story! Now I would not claim myself an exceptionally good writer. My grammar is extremely poor and I do not have an extensively large vocabulary. However, I have an urge to write. I want to write a book -- yes it will be incredibly hard to gain Stephenie Meyer status. It is perhaps non-achievable, however I am going to attempt it. Since I was little I have had an overactive imagination. Everything is a story in my mind. Everyone I meet immediately is given a story to their life. And my life, well it is spent half in real life and half in fantasy. Thus, I am going to write a book. I am going to take the imagination I have and write a novel. It perhaps will be poorly written, but as Twilight has proven, story will always win!
