I read avidly before I read Twilight, so nothing there.
Romance has never been to my tastes.
I suppose it brought words to me that I wouldn't see in most books, but...overused...
I have been inspired to stand up for what I believe in and be strong, even if I'm being hit. And make sure not to make my characters in my stories extremely powerful. I wish that her vamps hadn't been so powerful at times, it impossible for a human to do anything against them really. I've taken more time in editing what I write now as well, thinking about everything and the consequences of what might happen in later chapters and later books if I ever felt like writing more.
What on earth does fornification under consent of king have to do with this? Twilight.
