By: rhonda Wed, 03 Nov 2010 16:39:21 +0000 ]]> I think some people are just jealous of other peoples success….Stephenie had a GREAT imagination to think of Twilight. Not all vampires are bloody, crude and mean……I personally love the Twilight vampires..they are dreamy, caring and HOT….A great love story..which this world need is more love instead of hatred…And by the way I am 44 with two children. I am a Twi-mom, been to Forks, read the books, seen the movie and have several Twilight items….Way to go Stephenie, Robert, Taylor, Kristen and the rest of the cast for bringing it to LIFE…..Thanks♥

Especially the fact, that Meyer’s vamps are not conventional vampires as known since ever, has amazed me from the beginning and proves great creativity and imagination!
And by the way my time at high school was great and I would love to study again and again. Obviously I would study different subjects in different places etc.
And yes again, criticising someone else’s extremely successful work, that sounds to me more like jealousy rather than professionalism.
There are millions of people all around the globe who are absolutely devoted to her stories, I am one of them and I am not a teenager. (I am 31 and have a child.)

By: Jennifer Wed, 03 Nov 2010 06:30:33 +0000 I have read Anne Rice’s vampire books. They are really good. She tells her characters’ stories wonderfully and I recommend them to everyone.


What really got me saying “What the…” to the computer as I read this was the “It’s a failure of imagination.” Really? But maybe the real failure at imagination is writing all vampires as just evil demons void of any humanity. And where did that come from? From myths of thousands of years ago? From a time when certain religions fought for control and gave no hesitation in telling such stories of fear? Failure of imagination….pffft! Sparkly vampires is absolutely, 100 % imagination. The pure fact that she even says “They’re fantasy characters” proves by itself that there was no failure of imagination. Fantasy IS imagination. It’s creative. It’s unrealistic.

And who wrote an immortals handbook? Is there some code that says they couldn’t or wouldn’t choose to stay in high school? How does she know that some vamp wouldn’t choose to do that? Choice is what it comes to I guess. We’re ALL different. Our choices are not the same and our opinions are not the same. What you see one way, I might see another and someone else will see totally different from either of us. That’s not a failure in any way – that’s just what you’ve learned somewhere along the way and how you’re choosing to apply to this life now. And I think that even our fictional characters would do the same…otherwise I don’t think we’d ever even like any one of them because we wouldn’t or couldn’t feel connected to them.

I HATE to see writers bashing other writers (actually I hate to see people in general bashing other people). I think it’s insulting, even if you’re only hinting at it. You all go thru a creative process (each differently) to write any book and I think that in and of itself deserves the utmost respect whether you really like or agree with the final outcome. Geesh, didn’t they’re Mommas teach them “if you ain’t got anything nice to say, then don’t say anything”?! lol

OK, I’m done with my response…or vent about it. lol I just had to give ya my opinion though.
