  2. The last sentence of the second to last paragraph in the previously on is missing an a.
  3. After a long and confusing wait, the much barely anticipated conclusion of the White Sand graphic novels is finally here! Those of you following this thrilling saga will know that the listed release date has been pushed back many times since the listing first went up on Amazon. Well, we finally have confirmation that the listed release date is accurate because you can actually purchase and download the ebook. The hardcover, however, is still listed as October 1 and will not get delivered for a few weeks if that’s what you ordered. Those of you who have read the prose may still want to get this one, as Brandon has reported before that the ending would change between the two. There still may be some exciting twists and mysteries you haven’t yet gotten to read. This volume was illustrated by Fritz Casas, a completely different artist from either of the two who worked on Volume 2, so those of you who didn’t enjoy the previous art styles may find this one more appealing. Brandon also stated recently at DragonCon that this is unlikely to be the last graphic novel set on Taldain,and he is currently planning a trilogy of graphic novels focused on Khriss and Darkside. Where those will fall in relation to White Sand is currently unclear, but Khriss’s status at the end of this graphic novel may give us a clue to what we can expect to see from her going forward on Taldain. So grab your boombox and sit back to read the only cosmere that we’re getting in 2019.
  4. I'm not sure about 100% outline, but I think we'll see a push once he gets close to writing the end climax. But since he's writing the three arcs all the way through, we might see a couple mini pushes instead of one big one. Really, I have no idea how the writing will go. I think 50% is a likely milestone for another update. The next arc he wanted to do was about 80k words, which is 20% of the book, and he did the last update at 29%. It also just seems like a fairly important milestone. So hopefully we'll learn more about how things are going soon.
  5. Well now it's 42%.
  6. Here you go! The book opens on our Typical Brandon Protagonist. They've lived an average privileged life until this point as the child of a noble or royal. The one tragedy they've faced is the death of their mom when they were a child. When they reach their late teens/early twenties, they're life gets turned upside down when they gain a magic no one fully understands the rules of. They must balance it with their arranged marriage and the feasts and balls expected of their station, all while avoiding assassination attempts. Can they manage to complete all this and save their people from certain destruction caused by war or apocalypse? Find out in the next Typical Brandon Sanderson Novel!
  7. Brandon got some outlining done during his revisions it seems. It's up to 88% now!
  8. So it looks like during his revision of part 1, Brandon found some time to do a bit more outlining on Stormlight 4 and 5. It's now up to 88%. I wonder if he plans to finish the entire thing before he finishes writing Stormlight 4.
  9. Redin! He's such an interesting character. He's the only heterochromatic person we've met so far, so we could get a unique perspective on the caste system from him. And the way he was left at the end of Taravangian's interlude leaves so many questions open. He was already kind of an outcast from society, only respected and powerful because his father was so high ranking and chose to give him that position. Since he killed his father, that's probably all gotten so much worse for him. I've been a huge fan of the Redin becomes a Dustbringer theory since before OB came out, and I'm still hoping he's the Dustbringer in book 4 that Brandon has talked about. But I'd be happy with just finding out what actually happened to him. Another one that'd I'd eventually like to see more of is Vai. She's the young singer girl that Kaladin meets in part ! of OB. She was separated from her father so her father could fight and be killed in Kholinar. Her mother was sold off when she was a baby before the Everstorm hit. We have a singer orphan that's now being raised by the enemy and can will likely grow up believing whatever they tell her. Depending on how the fifth book ends, she could be such an interesting character to come back to in the back five to really see what it's like growing up in a singer society filled with hatred and a desire for revenge. Her perspective and upbringing would be a good contrast for someone like Gavinor, whose parents were also killed but was raised in Urithiru among family and people who love him.
  10. 27! I'd like the Reddit post, but I certainly won't complain if he wants to write more SA instead.
  11. I definitely think that if he decided to do all the flashbacks first, he's done with them by now. The flashbacks are about 10% of the words in OB. It would just mean we'd need to wait longer for part 1 to get entirely finished, since the flashbacks plus part 1 could be up to a third of the book at most.
  12. Brandon's pace right now is insane. It was moved to 21% yesterday morning and is at 23% tonight. He's basically been doing 1% every day he works on it. I wonder how long part 1 is. Part 1 in OB is around 25% of the book, so he's probably either finished or finishing it soon. Unless he's not doing it chronologically and went through all the flashbacks first, which he did with OB. I wouldn't mind a reddit update when part 1 does get finished, but I'm not going to complain if he spends the time writing more of the book instead.
  13. 20! 1/5 of the first draft is done!
