I've just recently read an article about Entertainment Weekly's (EW's) interview with Stephenie Meyer and here it goes:

Is Midnight Sun still dead to you, or can you see finishing and publishing it in the future?

STEPHENIE MEYER: It's really complicated, because everyone now is in the driver's seat, where they can make judgment calls. ''Well, I think this should happen, I think she should do this.'' I do not feel alone with the manuscript. And I cannot write when I don't feel alone. So my goal is to go for, like, I don't know, two years without ever hearing the words Midnight Sun. And once I'm pretty sure that everyone's forgotten about it, I think I'll be able to get to the place where I'm alone with it again. Then I'll be able to sneak in and work on it again.

So, what do you think? ...about erasing your memory on Midnight Sun...

She also answered another Midnight Sun question:

When you returned home after a grueling tour for Breaking Dawn, you discovered that your unfinished manuscript for Midnight Sun had leaked onto the Internet, and you released a statement saying you were permanently shelving the story. Do you still feel the same?

STEPHENIE MEYER: The funny thing about that statement is I didn't actually write the majority of it. I wrote about three single-spaced Word document pages of just real pain — with sort of a laugh on the end so everything was kind of tongue-in-cheek. And there were lawyerly people who thought it just wasn't a good way to do it. I didn't want to feel misrepresented in the letter and other people didn't want me to be too emotionally vulnerable. So in the end only the one or two sentences written by me seem really jarring, and people didn't get that there was sort of a joke in there. For example the part that's me is where I said, ''If I wrote it now everybody would end up dying.'' But that was a joke! And it sounded so serious amidst all the lawyer talk and I think my fans thought, Wow, she's threatening to kill everyone! [Laughing] I felt kind of bad about that. I never felt any anger, actually. Just a lot of sadness. I mean it was a sucker punch — like someone came up behind you and just hammered you in the kidneys and you had no idea it was coming.

...i kinda felt relieved here after reading that she wasn't really furious, just sad...

So, all in all, there IS hope of having Midnight Sun published~!! the bad side, it's still in the years to come T_T.. if no one talks about it..

well, the unfinished book was leaked out, i mean, at least in stephenie's website is says she sent some copies to the ppl she knew, like idk, her agent, family, publisher?
since she was still in the draft process, correcting, taking some parts, putting others, she knows who had the copy that was leaked out, so i hope she threw him/her a big big big apple.

so, there are some copies around on the internet, like in downloading programs etc.

since she didn't want her fans to feel guilty about reading it, she posted in her website the original midnight sun draft.

that's what happened with midnight sun (sry if i made some mistake or got one of the facts wrong)

i'm gonna shut up about that book now xD
