  1. I thought people might be interested in some of the stats from the 50 guesses we received from random Sharders. Completely unscientific, but fun to see what everyone expects. I didn't include many free response questions as they are hard to see. Most likely to die: Lirin, followed by Teft Most likely new world hoppers: Khriss, followed by Kelsier The "shameful ribbon" histogram peaks around chapter 108.
  2. Sorry, correct link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScDY4GdiKlo_s0lcSGAaxUvGFUvAkA6gCZx5XG8bA0Tu8f6YQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
  3. If you're interested, I'm running a little RoW prediction game. Final bets tonight! https://forms.gle/6XmJKJdsKgERx4gx
  4. Bumping this up. PSA: Tonight's the last night for placing your (non)bets in the Rhythm of War Guessing Game: https://forms.gle/6XmJKJdsKgERx4gx

  7. I will note that.
  8. Final version completed! Place your bets on the 17th Shard version here: https://forms.gle/4XNg3a7vHjNa4eVcA Feel free to share. You can edit your answers up until November 10th, and you will need a Google account to fill it out. No prizes offered, only bragging rights, unless it get really popular and someone wants to offer a prize. For my friends, I offered $20 of Sanderson store merch to the top point getter. I will post the answers in the RoW spoiler forum on November 30th, so you can calculate your score and become the new leader of the Diagram.
  9. I made a guessing game for my friends to place their bets about Rhythm of War, and thought I'd make a copy for the 17th Shard community to enjoy. https://forms.gle/4XNg3a7vHjNa4eVcA Feel free to share.

  10. I've been working on a RoW prediction pool for my friends. Anyone want to give some feedback? Here's the link to a copy: https://forms.gle/MJW6Yd7mLayV7hwR8 (You'll need to enter an email to move past the first page; just don't submit it.) What would you want to weigh-in on that have I missed? I've already had someone mention that I should include something about romances, but I can't think of a good quantifiable question. What's too obscure or poorly worded? Does the point balance seem reasonable? And what kind of handicap should I give those who've read sample chapters versus those who haven't? I'd be happy to let people copy/steal for their friends if interested, or even set up a version for the 17th Shard.
  11. No, no, the tv series is supposed to be Well of Ascension. Movie for book 1, tv series for book 2, movie for book 3. Only two movies total.
  12. Oh, I've got all the resources prepared. My kids have always been above the curve so I've always prepared for homeschooling in case the school wasn't adequately challenging. So I just updated a few of the things we do during the summer. The problem is the time suck.
  13. Well, due to everyone's favorite virus, they just closed the schools in our part of Washington state. I will probably not have time to read people's stuff for a while as I now have to homeschool 4 kids. Anyone else affected?
  14. Elaborate? Only thing I had heard was the L Ron Hubbard connection which people were protesting? @Snakenaps A lot of authors have used the contest to launch careers. There's no fee to enter and they run four contests a year. Unpublished authors only. If you are a finalist, it gets you on the radar of agents and publishers, plus there's a week long writing seminar for finalists. Brandon Sanderson was a finalist as well, along with Nnedi Okorafor.
  15. Does anyone here regularly submit stories to the Writers of the Future contest? I am very motivated by contests and deadlines, so I think I'm going to start submitting something every quarter. Would love to form a support group/peer pressure group.
