Stephenie continues to pout over spilled milk

A bunch of articles are circulating regarding midnight sun. This one was found here

'Twilight' Author Halts Work On Sequel

"Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer has abandoned writing the fifth installment of the popular vampire series, because she is upset that an unfinished manuscript of the book has been leaked online.

The writer was working the novel "Midnight Sun" when the half-written story made its way onto the Internet.

So disheartened by the move, Meyer has put down her pen and paper indefinitely.

Next to a posting of the leaked manuscript on her Web site, she writes, "I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on 'Midnight Sun,' so it is on hold indefinitely.

"I'd rather my fans not read this version. ... the writing is messy and flawed and full of mistakes. But how do I comment on this violation without driving more people to look for the illegal posting?"

A representative for the writer confirms to the New York Daily News, "Nothing's changed. Stephenie has no plans to move forward with 'Midnight Sun' at this time."

Instead, Meyer has moved on to write another tale, unrelated to the "Twilight" series.

The spokesperson adds, "Stephenie is working on something else at the moment. But she hasn't announced it yet. It isn't 'Twilight'-related. When she's ready to reveal it, she will. This has been an intense three years for her, and currently she's just focusing on being a writer."

The first book in Meyer's vampire novels was turned into a big screen blockbuster last year, with the Robert Pattinson-starring movie grossing $337 million to date worldwide.

I love SM, but seriously - stuff happens and it is REALLY time to get over it!! It's ok if she just wants to write other things - totally fine, but this is a stupid reason hold out on MS, like she is punishing everyone for her sadness.

She is doing a disservice to herself and her fans and even to the series. Even from reading the "messy" manuscript that was leaked, I learned a lot about Edward that I had never known and it helped me to understand him much better.

But really, it's time to move on.

Didn't it get leaked out awhile ago?! Or did it happen again??

This irritates me. I understand she doesn't want people seeing her unfinished work, flaws and all. But get over it! She's a HUGE star now. Everyone knows her name, whether they read her books or not. You've got to expect that things like this will happen now. She's a target for it. And unfortunately this is what comes with the territory of fame.

I agree, I think she's doing a disservice to her fans that HAVE been loyal. It isn't fair.

That was posted on her website awhile ago was it not? Also, I thought she was getting over the whole thing and even posted it for us to DL on her website.

She should finish it. It is being mean to her FANS to not finish it now. I really would like to read it in it's entirety and would buy it. I'm sure every Twilight fan would. Ugh! It makes me not want to read whatever new thing she is working on until this is done. ><
