This blog actually ties in nicely with last week’s Teen Seen theme, “Gossip.” Yesterday someone tweeted a link to a news story which stated that Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series, was being sued by her former college roommate for plagiarism, since said college roommate had written a short story for her writing class in college and believed Meyer had stolen the idea for her hit novels from her. She had the backing of her professor at Brigham Young, who remembered her story.

You’d think, after all this talk about gossip last week, I would have known better, but I FREAKED out. Called a friend so we could shriek and cry together, searched on every possible combination of terms to try and find this woman’s original story…and then I stumbled across this article on Twilight Lexicon, debunking the whole thing.

Well, thank God SOMEBODY keeps a cool head in a crisis. Just goes to show you, folks…don’t believe everything you read.

Funny how, when you're successful, people come out of the woodwork to ask you for money, or say you stole theirs!

Glad it was a hoax.Btw, do you know you write "funny?" I mean that in a GOOD way!
