Personally, I think that SM is making this a big deal as media attention.
Not saying that she needs any, but still, it makes a good story for a famous author such as herself to have all the media attention on her.
And it is not a direct criticism to SM, but she is the author of the book, so it is HER call to finish it or not. All this babbling about I-will-finish-if-I-stop-hearing-about-it crap makes no sense at all, because if she really wants to do it, she will! It's that simple! So, if her choice is to not write the book for now due to all the stressful events (leakage, media pressure, fan pressure, unrelated people commenting on what she should do and etc), she is entirely free to do so. I totally get how that can be really annoying.... If the leaking broke her heart and killed her motivation, then she should really take a break and start when she is ready.
I just don't agree with the excuses she is giving to the media. Really, she should just tell the truth... But then, maybe she shouldn't, she should keep her lame excuses and have all her fans hovering on her, whining and begging for her to finish MS.
She said that it's not edited and that's not the way she wants us to read it... Big deal! She should just go ahead and edit it and add or delete things that she feels necessary! This punishing the readers for someone's lack of loyalty to her is sooooo fifth grade... I don't even think that the leaked draft would interfere with MS's actual publication. If all members from this forum are as committed as I am to SM's writing and the saga, reading it online will not stop anyone from buying it!
I really really love the Twilight saga and as soon as I saw the MS draft on her website I downloaded it. Of course I want to read it! And there is nothing I wish more than for SM to finish MS. I will wait, though. I'll be patient until the day she finally decides to publish. If one day she decides not to, I will understand and have appreciated MS's draft.
I just hope she doesn't keep on giving these excuses for too long....
