Why doesn't Stephenie Meyer continue writing more books after "Breaking Dawn"?

There was a large conflict in various posting boards.  From the rumors I read in places like Fandom Wank, Stephenie Meyer was very upset by some of the reviews of Breaking Dawn and was even more upset when pieces of Midnight Sun were released without her permission.  She become very disillusioned.  In an official post, she said, "My first feeling was that there was no way to continue. Writing isn't like math; in math, two plus two always equals four no matter what your mood is like. With writing, the way you feel changes everything. If I tried to write Midnight Sun now, in my current frame of mind, James would probably win and all the Cullens would die."

This has caused her to be subjected to both sympathy and quite of bit of derision because of her inability to handle what is a very normal part of a writer's life.

Midnight Sun was her next book and this was written in Edward's perspective but this was leaked onto the internet and she has not decided to continue it because she was extremely mad that something like this has happened. Who wouldn't be mad if your new hard work of a new book was leaked online.

Think I saw somewhere that Stephanie Meyer as said that it was basically time to let go of the series and Twilight had run its course. I just think at the time and moment she just wasn't into the series as she was at the beginning. She received a lot of backlash for Breaking Dawn because many didn't like the way the Voltaire part went down then Midnight Sun had been leaked. So with all of this happening maybe her mind just wasn't with the series anymore and once creativity goes blockage flows.

Some stupid person posted the first 12 chapters of Middnight Sun on the internet ,the Fourth book, so she is not shure if she will finish it because if she finish it now James would win. And that would be bad

there's suppose to be a book called "midnight sun" coming out but it's going to be a retelling of "Twilight" but in Edwards point of view. I'm not too sure because supposidly Stephanie Meyers wrote it before "elipse" and "breaking dawn"
