I saw you at Oinkster on Sunday but you were leaving and I was standing in line and couldn’t yell loud enough to get your attention. When my friends asked who you were I said that’s Katelin… she was the person who gave me Twilight to read for the first time, they oh-ed and ah-ed in a bit of a shared moment of understanding. How far we had come from that day you walked into my office, handed me that paperback telling me to just read the first 100 pages and tell you what I thought, till now. There’s been a WHOLE lotta in between then and now… this blog, writing again, our readers, the movies, the OTHER books in the series, meeting Stephenie, like a billion things. I mostly thought about how I don’t think I’ve ever written to you before here at Letters to Twilight, because honestly without you none of us you be here right now. So I’m here today to write you a thank you letter because you deserve one.
It’s funny to think back on staying up reading so late that first night because (of course) I got sucked in and couldn’t put down the world of Edward and Bella and then excitedly im-ing you the next morning saying we needed to discuss. Who cares about the difference between unique views and actual views and if SheKnows is going to feature whatever we were working on that day… the REAL issues were finding out WHAT Edward was and Bella’s Dad really knew what was going on! Oh and can you believe that girl from In The Land of Women (for reals yall) is going to play Bella?
No, it’s n0t Thanksgiving and yes, I’m a tad annoyed at myself for not thinking of this idea in November but it doesn’t need to be a special time of the year to be thankful and I’m just glad I have this platform to tell you THANK YOU!!! My life’s been all the better because you handed me that book.
Love and thanks!
Do you have someone to thank Twilight for? Did you discover it on your own? Who’s your Katelin?
