Meyer came up with the plot during the day, and wrote it out late at when her kids were asleep. A couple months later she finished her first novel, Twilight.

Plot Teaser

Bella is stuck between the decision of choosing either the vampires or the werewolves. They both hate each other and she knows it. What will the final decision be?

"I got a good look at his mind tonight," he began in a low voice. "I'm not sure if there's anything I could have done to avoid this, once he saw you. It is partially your fault." His voice was wry. "If you didn't smell so appallingly luscious, he might not have bothered. But when I defended you... well, that made it a lot worse. He's not used to being thwarted, no matter how insignificant the object. He thinks of himself as a hunter and nothing else. His existence is consumed with tracking, and a challenge is all he asks of life. Suddenly we've presented him with a beautiful challenge - a large clan of strong fighters all bent on protecting the one vulnerable element. You wouldn't believe how euphoric he is now. It's his favorite game, and we've just made it his most exciting game ever." His tone was full of disgust.

This Passage shows the never ending conflict between humans and vampires.
