oh!! hello fellow virgins!!!
i had no idea this thread even existed!! in fact, i think the person above me (sorry, i don't know your name!) is the one who told me about it over on the team edward thread. anywho.
i haven't read MS because, as an aspiring writer (aren't we all?
), i don't think i would want my unpolished manuscript out there for my readers before i was prepared to have them see it. i mean, i'm writing a story (er, book) right now, but the first few chapters of it are REALLY rough and i can't imagine how i'd feel if i had a fanbase as huge as stephenie's and then all of sudden they could see all the mistakes i made. wow, sorry if that sentence didn't make any sense. anyway, especially after all the crap steph got from breaking dawn (which i personally thought was amazing, by the way--i dunno what people are complaining about), i'm not surprised that she was really upset about the leak.
that being said, it's really hard NOT to read it, but i've persevered so far!! i just want to wait until i can have a nice, bound copy in my hands--a complete one too! another reason i won't read it is because i KNOW it's going to be amazing and i'm going to love it, but since it's only a partial draft i know i'll be in even worse agony not knowing what's going to happen next than i ever was not reading it.
okay all--we must keep strong!!
