On Brandons latest YouTube AMA, he made the Skyward outline available here:

Writing Advice

Contains a great premise for Skyward and shows his process for starting the book. Insightful piece if you're intrigued by that.

That was fascinating! Sanderson's talked about certain changes before, such as cutting Spensa and Jorgen's romance plot. I hope Jorgen still lives to see the end of the series! It'd be terrible if Sanderson used this outline as a meta-twist, having those of use who read it feel safe since the outline has clearly changed, only for Sanderson to pull the rug under us. Having humans be the Krell in a way would have been interesting, if not a tad predictable. I"m curious how that would play out in Starsight then. Would humans have been secondary citizens, banned from the military due to their violent nature? Could Spensa have simply snuck onto the titular city?

Either way, this was fun to see, although I do think I prefer the annotations instead...
