A failed writing exercise of Stephenie Meyer's. In an attempt to prove wrong the critics who claimed she could not write a less imaginative and original book than Twilight and because she ran out of ideas for 'new' stories and she wanted to squeeze every last drop of money out of the Twilight franchise, Meyer decided to simply rewrite the original book from a different point of view, hiding her greed and lack of originality by calling it a 'character development' exercise which 'got out of hand'. This of course is false as it implies that Edward Cullen, the one-dimensional protagonist of this exercise, has a character to be developed.
The exercise was abandoned when an incomplete draft was leaked and, tragically, Meyer felt it was too 'huge a violation of my rights as an author, not to mention me as a human being' to continue. Read: she realised there was no money left in it. Some people contend that the readers of the Twilight franchise are so mentally retarded they would have bought copies anyway.
Meyer claimed Midnight Sun 'adds a new dimension to the Twilight story'. Considering how one-dimensional the original tale is you'd think this was achievable, but apparently not for her..
