Thank you to my friend JK (of Trixie and Tess
) for pointing out that TODAY marks ten years since Stephenie Meyer's dream of Edward and Bella in the meadow.
Ten years since she woke up, couldn't stop thinking about the dream, and took her kids to swim lessons and went about her day, all while thinking about the plot. Three months later, Twilight was finished
. And now here we all are, in various stages of post-Twilight-sadness-symdrome (PTSS), tucking away our mini-Edwards and mourning Robsten once again.
I'd love to hear from each of you how that day ten years ago would eventually change your life. When did you first enter the Twilight world? What crazy things has it led you to do?
Me, I read it in November of 2008. And, I have been to Forks (3x!), to Baton Rouge to set-stalk Breaking Dawn (unsuccessfully, but it was exhilarating!), and to LA for the BD2 premiere. It got me started reading again. It makes me want to write and publish my own stories. But more than any of these, I have made some of the deepest and most wonderful friendships of my life. It sounds cheesy to say, but that doesn't change the fact that it's true: Twilight changed my life.
What about you?
