I was wondering if anyone could clear this up for me.... so in Stephenie Meyer's site it says
June 2008 Update: In response to the outrageous number of emails that I have received with questions concerning Midnight Sun, I talked to Stephenie this weekend and she asked me to let everyone know that Midnight Sun is her next project.She has not yet finished writing it (and there is no timeline set up, so we all need to put a lot of effort into being patient for a while longer), but she is definitely still planning on having it published. And, after Breaking Dawn comes out, Stephenie will have much more time to focus on writing Midnight Sun.
but the letter where Stephenie states that she wasn't sure when she was going to pick it back up was written in August 2008 so I'm kinda trying not to jump the gun like I really want to!!! just wondering if anyone had any definite news either way
Simplest explanation: The June "update" was written prior to the leak, while she was still working on it and it was still completely her intention to end The Saga with MS. But, the August "update" was post-leak, after she couldn't and didn't want to deal with MS because of the betrayal she felt. I believe her quote was, "If I finished it right now, James would kill all the Cullens and he and Bella would ride off into the sunset together." (I'm paraphrasing). So, keep your hopes, but maybe put them on the 2nd or 3rd floor vs the 10th or 11th.
