Trotter replied to Caramella Dura's discussion Why are we so entranced by the Twilight Saga?
"Stephenie Meyer communicates emotion better than anyone else I have ever read.   Authors have made me cared about worlds, are cared about characters, but SM made me feel what her protagonist feels.   I didn't just understand what…"

Trotter replied to Caramella Dura's discussion Why are we so entranced by the Twilight Saga?
"I have heard several people critize Stephenie Meyer's (SM) wrting ability, and I am wondering upon what grounds this critism is being leveled.  Writing is about communication.  The power of SM's work is that she…"

Trotter replied to Caramella Dura's discussion Robert Pattinson/Edward Cullen Quotes
"The prohibition against real names and giving away identifying information was part of an older incarnation of this sight.  I do not believe they still apply.   I kept the name; so that, my friends from the old sight was still know me."

"It only sounds like the burden is on the woman because I am predominately talking to women.  In my personal opinion, the burden always falls to the cluefull party.  Who ever has the clue has the responsibility.  That isn't…"

"Yes, that is pretty funny now.  After rereading it, I am wishing that I had spelled in I-N instead of I-S.  I do have problem proof reading my own work because I know what I meant to say and that is what my mind reads inspite of what is on…"

Trotter replied to Dantezgirl's discussion Why Rosalie?

Trotter replied to JJ's discussion Is Edward a man or a boy?
"Edward is a young man well on his way to becoming a man.  Edward was frozen when he was bitten.  He was very mature even for 17 when he was bitten, but he froze there.  He grew intellectually, but not emotionally.  When he met…"

Trotter replied to JJ's discussion Is Edward a man or a boy?
"Edward is not a Pedophile. Pedophiles are attracted to prepubescent children.  Bella was young, but she was certainly well past puberty. This word gets used a lot on the forum for its shock effect when it simply doesn't apply."

Profile Information

Five Things Everyone Should Know About You?
I am 44 years old.
I am have been happily married for over 20 years.
I have four children. Two boys and two girls.
I love to engage in substantive discussion.
When Did You First Read Twilight (year) and how many times have you read a Twilight Book (total)?
I read Twilight in August of 2008. Just before I went on a five day business trip. I got New Moon to read on the plane out. I have finished the entire series before I got back.

I stopped counting after I had read all three books at least three times. I have also read the first twelve chapters of Midnight Sun and all of the extras etc on Stephenie Meyer's website.
Team Edward or Team Jacob? Why?
I am Team Edward. I am Team Edward for one and only one reason. That is because Bella is Team Edward. If Bella were Team Jacob, I could be just as easily be Team Jacob.
Which Character Are You Most Like?
I am going to say Charlie Swan. Mostly because he is the oldest character in the saga, and I am older than he is. :-( Also because when I read the series, I mostly see Bella as a daughter. So that explains my photo.
Favorite Books
I am going to list some of my favorite authors instead in alphabetical order.

Douglas Adams, Piers Anthony, Isaac Asimov, Jean M. Auel, Ray Bradbury, Patricia Briggs, Terry Brooks, Stephen R. Donaldson, Arthur Conon Doyle, Laurell Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Christopher Paolini, Ann Rice, J. K. Rowling, Bram Stoker, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jules Vern and of course Stephenie Meyer.

Just wanted to let you know that I was reading some of your blog pages and find them highly entertaining.  I have no idea why, but I started with "Dragons Can Fly And It's Spelled S-T-E-P-H-E-N-I-E" and I loved every bit of it.  It's nice to hear a man's take on the Saga.  Heaven knows my husband would not read these books. As I find time I'll be revisiting your blogs to read more.

Hi Trotter,
Yes….Your Son’s are of the Male persuasion so they do count…..I am truly amazed that your wife has no desire to read the Saga…She may think like my Aunt …My Aunt does not want to get too involved in the series craze, picking teams…just the whole obsession so she chooses not to read it...But I think they are both missing out on something special....
At 11:46pm on September 10, 2010, ONE OF US-C.L.Davis said…
It is very refreshing to see not only a male but a seemingly well educated family man that is interested in this Saga...there is hope that this may not be a just a chick thing....if its just a chick thing that would be sad because it is basically a love story....Most males that I have come across on this site want to either Bash Bella , Kristen, the whole Saga and Women for enjoying it…. I think Love should interest both
The Woman and the Man just as Bella and Edward are in love

Have you gotten any of your Male friends hooked on the Saga.....This enquiring mind wants to know

hi um i was reading your page and you said that bella is on team edward but she clearly states that she is team switzerland because she loves them both equaly but not in the same way so there for you should put team switzerland instead.

Hi Trotter, I have enjoyed your responses to the various discussions you have started or participated in on this site. I wanted to invite you if you are interested in joining a chapter by chapter discussion of "Twilight" the book on another site. A woman Savannah started the discussion last year and it got deleted over the summer. She has set it up on another site and so far just the two of us have been keeping up. We are up to Chapter 13 now, but I need to recreate my responses for the earlier chapters since they got deleted. I have now learned to save them in Word first before posting. Live and lear. Anyway, if you are interested, I can send you the link. Let me know. Thanks.

Just thanks!
When I asked about "average age" on the forum it was just because I had not yet fallen on your comments :) what a relief! A real brain! LOL!
Please do never stop!

To answer DantezGirl's question in general. My Blog entries are well attributed and posted to be read. I have no issues with anyone posting a link to one of my blog entries.

However, I would appreciate an e-mail with a link to discussion because if you think that one of my blog entries would contribute to the discussion, I just might want to contribute to the discussion in person.
