Writing Timeline

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried to compile a writing timeline for Brandon starting with Centrifugal in 1994 and through all of the pre-publication (2003) writings and then on up through the WoT years, and Stormlight then on forward to the present day?

I've started to document some of that information, but was wondering if that's already all available somewhere? I didn't see anything on the Coppermind or elsewhere with a bit of Google-ing.

Subbing out of sheer curiosity. If this gets a final product then that's some sheer dedication.

I think that the Bibliography on the Coppermind has most of this, but the Unpublished Works are separate.  

The bibliography covers publishing dates, but not writing timelines. And at least for the most part, the individual entries on each book don't discuss the writing timelines. Same goes for the unpublished works.
