  1. Assuming he takes the weekends off, that still works out to 20 working days / month ie 40,000 words per month assuming he doesn’t work on anything else or travel, etc. On a 400,000 words target, it will take him 10 months, which makes it challenging to hit the 1 Jan target as he started in April.
  2. I’d be more happy to be wrong on this one, but Brandon’s previously mentioned that he writes about 30k words a month. At that speed, it’s mathematically impossible to meet the 1 Jan deadline. Here’s to hoping that Brandon can turbo charge with vol. 4. But, I am thinking late September 2021 release at this rate.
  3. Found out today that my best friend from college days has had a brain stroke and is bed ridden. He’s 38 and has 2 kids life is not fair
  4. Finished The Umbrella Academy season 1 on netflix today...
  5. Finished the broken earth trilogy. Good writing, a bit melancholy and a truly alien experience.
  6. I can recommend Instant Family if you are into inoffensive comedies that everyone can watch....
  7. Disney is coming out with their streaming service soon. Might look into it at some point
  8. I had the same issue with Rotten Tomatoes. Reading actual reviews of the reviewers I like, it is nowhere like the rating rotten tomatoes give the movie.
  9. You have it in you... you are probably the most prolific reader in the thread!
  10. Probably why they wouldn’t put ratings on their stuff. So hard to pick without researching everything
  11. Saw 20 minutes of Polar... such a terrible D grade movie on netflix. Honestly why did anyone bother to make it. Truly a waste... I want my 20 minutes back
  12. Listened to Phil in the blanks (podcast) with Dr Phil McGraw and Steve Harvey. Steve was brilliant and very open in the interview.
  13. I am nearly at the end of book 1, and I couldn’t do it anymore, ie deal with the suspense. So, I went to wikipedia and read all the plot summaries to book 3. I had figured who the three women were quite early. Overall, the Broken Earth is a good book. The melancholy/factual tone of the narrator reminds me of the Ancillary series that came out a few years aho.
  14. Thanks. Even I am concerned about making unreasonable requests taking up too much time. Hence, the bookmarks idea. I acknowledge that the shardcast at times jumps around with topics. But, I am happy even if I am getting 80% of the discussion. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
  15. Even if there a list posted:- (Made up timings below) 15:00 cosmere 35:00 reckoners 55:00 mistborn 1:10 Other long term projects 1:20 funny bits All books have an index, so all I am asking is some way to skip to the sections I am interested in.
