Interview With Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg

Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the script for the Twilight movie, was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule (When you read the interview, you realize that this lady has multi-tasking down!) to tell us about writing the movie script.


Some highlights include:

"There’s nowhere I’d rather be than in a room full of talented writers, breaking story together. But it can also be a little like being crammed onto a submarine during wartime."

"I live in terror of writer’s block. I had it once, early on. It’s the complete loss of confidence. Horrible. The only way through it is to simply write."

"And of course, Catherine, whose work I absolutely loved, so I was a little intimidated meeting her. I went in and talked about how I thought the book could be structured. We discussed many different options, but the one thing we all completely agreed on was that the book was our bible. We would not veer off it."

Here’s the interview. Thank you again to Melissa, and thank you to Cocoa for acting as our interviewer.

    Thanks for you comments about my work. I don’t know if it is appropriate to post about my work here but I know how much we all love these books and I feel like it’s the only way I have to thank Stephenie Meyer for sharing her imagination with us.

    If you’re an art student just keep at it. You get better with every piece you do.

  9. What a great interview. I haven’t been able to find the script so I was really excited to hear what Melissa had to say. It just makes me more excited to see the movie. It’s great that everyone connected with this film really wants to pay tribute to Stephanie’s vision. And, yes, I love HP and Twilight.
