How bizarre... the forum changed a word that I used to 'extended vulgar language'. I have edited my post to put a space in the middle of the word.

What I wrote (but was changed for some reason) was the use of a flash back to move the action along.
I'd like to marry Edward, dance with George Sampson, have dinner with Jamie Oliver and to star on the West End with Lee Mead.

i think Bella has finally figured out what she wants, and is planning to go thru with it. she knows what she's leaving behind, but figures she's gaining more. i was a bit surprised by the different writing style in breaking dawn, but... :)

I really hope she has matured and it sounded like she has, even the part where she's convincing herself that it doesn't matter what people think sounds like a different Bella. Sometimes she tries too hard to please everyone and be an 'everyone' type of person. Don't know if that makes sense :lol:
I want to sparkle like Edward!

Bella does put alot of pressure on herself. she's spent her life taking care of other people. I think that taking the actions that lead to get what she wants in life is a huge step.

well it sounded like bella to me. she has always been mature. however, she sounds much more winney. I hated it. She should be happy. She is marrying her soal mate! EDWARD!!!!!!!
I think she is thinking to much again. always wanting to help and make others happy.
I relly don't think bella could be any more mature then she already is.
I was already past trying to live through one week at a time, or even on day. I was fighting to make it through a single hour. It was only a matter of time - and not much of it- before I showed up at your window and begged you to take me back. I'd be happy to beg now, if you'd like that.
I LOVE EDWARD CULLEN

It's easier to make desicions for others -you don't have to live with it.
It's matured her to make her own desicions.

it' one thing to be happy to know you are marrying your soulmate. but it's another to know that the whole town is gossiping that you got knocked-up.

but that is one to the cansequences that she has to deal with,

Bella's maturity.

Post by Alleymania »

Bella does seem to be more mature. She is thinking clearly but in all of the prefaces that is the way it seems. It's like life froze around her and she could think clearly.

I think....

I think all that has happened is acceptance, yes she has become more mature since the first novel, but near death experience would probably change the way you look at alot of things...but the reason I say acceptance is because she has decided to give in and knows that this is how she needs to be: responsible ...,but she said that in Eclipse when she gave her little speech to Edward about how she was going to do things the "right" way, so I don't really think much has changed from Eclipse to Breaking Dawn (so far) except she has stopped trying to prevent the wedding...and from that point in time mostly because it was only a few days away...

"And I'm a Virgo!" I shouted, exasperated."
