wordlessrage Sun Nov 01
Finished listening to A Memory of Light: Wheel of Time, Book 14 (Unabridged) by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson: link

wordlessrage Sun Nov 01
Finishing The Wheel of Time audiobooks took me just over 4 and a half months. The silence I feel now that it is gone is deafening.

wordlessrage Sun Nov 01
Hey @BrandSanderson? You did an amazing job. I’m glad you were the one to see Rand and company off.

BrandSanderson Sun Nov 01
@wordlessrage It was an honor.

theCViz Sun Nov 01
@BrandSanderson Could you make a Lifeless out of someone killed with a Shardblade?

BrandSanderson Sun Nov 01
@theCViz Shardblades sever the soul from the body, but Awakening makes a “fake” soul for a body, so how the soul left doesn’t matter.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 02
Welcome to National Novel Writing Month, everyone. To celebrate, I’m back to working on Stormlight 3. (Finally.)

ChrisdeMercado Mon Nov 02
@BrandSanderson What’s your policy on fanfiction–not for publication–based off your work, especially when it comes to events like NaNo?

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 02
@ChrisdeMercado I have no problem with it. Keep writing!

callumke Mon Nov 02
@BrandSanderson thanks for making it all the way to #FantasyCon2015, hope you can be productive now you are home! 50k words here we come!

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 02
@callumke It was a lot of fun, Callum. Good luck with your own writing this month.

WhatSheepSaid Mon Nov 02
@BrandSanderson since you are doing it for nanorimo that means you are finishing it this month, right?

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 02
@WhatSheepSaid Ha. 350k words in one month would be a stretch, even for me. I’ll be happy with 50k.

Jonathan__Wood Mon Nov 02
@BrandSanderson my son would kill me if he knew I sent this but it would be so cool if you checked out link. Can’t hurt..

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 02
@Jonathan__Wood I don’t have time to read even all my friends’ books, so I don’t know if I could ever get to this. But tell him (more)…

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 02
@Jonathan__Wood …the excerpt looks good, and he should feel super proud. Most people never finish their novel, and he did. Well done!

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 02
I saw this awesome shirt during my tour at Murder by the Book in Houston. #shadowsofself #mistborn pic

TyMoseley Mon Nov 02
@BrandSanderson is there a limit to how many books you will sign at Yallfest? pic

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 02
@TyMoseley Not unless they have a limit. I do not. (Though I ask people to keep personalizations to a minimum.)

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
In round 1 of the 2015 Goodreads Choice Awards, Shadows of Self is nominated link and Firefight link

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03

emilyandroses Tue Nov 03
@BrandSanderson link How sick would this make an allomancer?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@emilyandroses Ha! That’s super cool.

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
2k words yesterday, 2k more today. Not my fastest speed, but steady. Stormlight 3 % bar is ready to inch up for the first time in a while.

Hexy27Bernie1 Tue Nov 03
@BrandSanderson so at that rate 200 more writing days?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@Hexy27Bernie1 Closer to 150, since I have about a quarter of the book done already. But yes, I anticipate this being 400k words.

authorsahunt Tue Nov 03
@BrandSanderson I’m glad to hear you do about as much as I do. I wish I could get a solid-enough fix on my MS so I could do a progress bar.

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@authorsahunt I’m lucky in that, over time, I’ve been able to get a good feel for how long books will be. Lets me do % bars easily.

authorsahunt Tue Nov 03
@BrandSanderson My estimates are always wildly off. Book 3: 300k. I thought Book 4 would be 90? 189. Figured book 5 would be huge. 100k!

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@authorsahunt Eh, as you probably know, writing at the right length is more important than actual length. You could always put a length bar.

Link_Law Tue Nov 03
@BrandSanderson Are we anticipating another 400k monster, or is this going to be closer to 300K?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@Link_Law 400k, I’m afraid. Book 4 could be 300, but book 3 has some of the longest sequences in the series.

DrewKarpyshyn Tue Nov 03
[email protected] wow – I’m happy if I do 5k a week.
#humblebrag

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@DrewKarpyshyn A lot of the writing you do is more concentrated though. I don’t get 2k a day on scripts.

johnlindquist Tue Nov 03
@BrandSanderson do you know what your typing speed is? Do you have a preferred keyboard?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@johnlindquist I can type very fast, 80 or so, but rarely when writing does it come up.

Stillweather Tue Nov 03
YES!!! YESSSSS! YESSSSS!!! PLEASE GO FASTER! link

Stillweather Tue Nov 03
@BrandSanderson I just realised how that sounded or read. Sorry.

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@Stillweather Ha. I understand the sentiment and appreciate the enthusiasm. πŸ™‚

BrentLooyenga Tue Nov 03
@BrandSanderson any time frame for the next Storm Light Archive book?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 03
@BrentLooyenga Maybe next year this time.

WhatSheepSaid Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson is it an updated version of this? link

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@WhatSheepSaid Not exactly. That’s more of a worldbook. This is more like a very, very detailed glossary.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
Here’s an excerpt of the Mystic audiobook by @jasondenzel, narrated by @MaryRobinette. link

RazRiverblade Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson A year till stormlight 3 o.o I’m going to find myself one of these. pic

RazRiverblade Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson Last i heard it was expected this spring. i should stop getting my hopes up when the release is not official πŸ™

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@RazRiverblade Yeah, I need to be careful about managing people’s expectations on these. Fall looks possible, though.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
1850 words today so far, though I’ll probably do another session tonight. Keep going on your @NaNoWriMo novels, everyone.

Dmon35 Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson But how many did your army of Robo-Clones write?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@Dmon35 They’re hard at work prowling around @PatrickRothfuss’s house, hoping to get a peek at Kingkiller 3.

EricThePipe Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson Let someone borrow the Mistborn books… And he’s hooked, I laughed at his now gone weekend, when he has homework…

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@EricThePipe

SussanRey17 Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson sorry to bother you, Brandon, but… in which novel are you working right now?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@SussanRey17 The third book of the Stormlight archive, titled (most likely) Oathbringer.

Destrus76 Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson Any idea of length? Thinking 1050 to 1100 pages like the first 2?

cobraspideyguy Wed Nov 04
@Destrus76 @BrandSanderson his progress bar is based on 400k

Destrus76 Wed Nov 04
@cobraspideyguy @BrandSanderson so, basically in line with the length of the first two Stormlight novels. Thanks!

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@Destrus76 @cobraspideyguy Yup. This one should be about that length, much to my publisher’s chagrin.

1badpennyblog Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson About to run a Mistborn adventure game. Any tips?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@1badpennyblog Focus on making sure every member of the team has something to add and to do that is important.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@1badpennyblog The team dynamic is an important part of the books, and of a good RPG session.

chrismelotti Wed Nov 04
@BrandSanderson #ShadowsOfSelf… pure brilliance. Love the new #Mistborn novel.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 04
@chrismelotti Thanks!

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@TheClumsyman That should work. If you’re worried, just send a follow up email.

Yourigath Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom Talking about physics and Cosmere… Is the gravity on each planet the same as on Earth? It shouldn’t. (1/2)

Yourigath Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson @PeterAhlstrom and if it isn’t? How do the changes affect things like Coinshoting or Surges out of Scadrial/Roshar? (2/2)

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@Yourigath @PeterAhlstrom They are not all the same. And you’ll have to wait and see on how that affects things. πŸ™‚

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
Final wordcount for yesterday was 2628, after a second writing session at night. I’ll let you know how today goes.

kiwijordan Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson do you plan what to write first, with broad strokes, or do you just crank it out and see where it takes you?

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@kiwijordan I’m a planner/outliner for plots, though I tend to discovery write characters. (I talk about this a lot in my writing lectures.)

Destrus76 Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson Do you find you write more per day as you near the end of a project or are you pretty steady throughout?

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@Destrus76 I speed up right near the end, and am often slower at the start, but for the most part, it’s steady.

GoRangersUSAF Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson Deployed so I am reading again. Just finished Mistborn/TWOA. Starting THOA. Great books, thx 4 the entertainment!

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@GoRangersUSAF Enjoy! And thanks for reading. Stay safe out there.

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
Today’s @NaNoWriMo progress on Stormlight 3: 2719 words, which makes another % bar tick up, taking us to 23%. 9347 words so far this month.

Reth_Bloodhand Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson @NaNoWriMo I swear to god Brandon if you finish Stormlight 3 this month

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@Reth_Bloodhand @NaNoWriMo Heh. I think 300k words in a month is a LITTLE beyond even me.

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
As a note, today’s scene from Oathbringer turned out particularly well. Pretty hyped about this sequence as it’s coming together.

mikezentz Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson have any teaser chapters been released other than Dalinar’s flashback chapter?

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@mikezentz There was a Kaladin one last year, I believe. link has it somewhere.

Sacae89 Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson Is Oathbringer the name of book 3?

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@Sacae89 Currently, yes.

Dr4konian Thu Nov 05
@BrandSanderson Why Brandon, WHY!!!! dammit I know I want this book but there is no way I will be able to get a signed copy πŸ™ South Africa

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 05
@Dr4konian I sell signed copies of my books through various stores, but the shipping all that way is expensive. We do sell cheap book plates

TheHachTag Fri Nov 06
Alphabetized my books by title. I find it amusing that my collection starts and (almost) ends with @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@TheHachTag Hmm… Looks like I need a book that starts with “Zud”

TrinityGreer Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson just read Shadows of Self love it. It really impact my son too. Keep writing!

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@TrinityGreer Thank you. I hope you find Bands of Mourning an interesting compliment to it.

LostCadence Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson (So I am mostly interested in how the membership is taking this decision)

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@LostCadence It’s a divisive topic, even among members. The children thing isn’t as bad as it looks, though.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@LostCadence The LDS church has a long history of being extra careful about when minors can join. Often, it’s better for them to wait.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@LostCadence I’m not one to talk on this topic, though, as it’s one that I find personally difficult.

LostCadence Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson Understandable. Thanks for your input. I do find it very troubling, but it’s good to hear its debated by the membership.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@LostCadence Interestingly, one of the apostles’ brothers is gay, and comes to church with his husband sometimes.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@LostCadence link link

up2000lbs Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson When you finish the 2K+ words per writing session, what percentage are you guessing will make it to print?

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@up2000lbs I varies a lot based on the scene. Some get cut entirely. Some remain relatively untouched. On average, I keep around 75%.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@up2000lbs Though in some of my earlier books, I changed over 50% between first and last draft.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
Let’s try this out. I’ve been listening to music while writing Stormlight 3, so I built you a @spotify playlist: link

townk Fri Nov 06
Mr. @BrandSanderson is the author that most delivery on promises. I asked this on the CA signing and here it is! Thank you Sr.!

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@townk Ah, so that was you! Well, you’re welcome. πŸ™‚

Enchantedbooks Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson do you listen to music, when you write? @Spotify

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@Enchantedbooks @Spotify Yes, this exact list of songs right now.

baldwinamandac Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson @Spotify Interesting. I find the series goes best with power metal.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@baldwinamandac @Spotify I have listened to my share of power metal, but it can be distracting while writing. Better for planning sessions.

dragonglave Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson I noticed one of the songs is from the Bastion soundtrack. Did Bastion inspire or influence anything in stormlight?

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@dragonglave Not specifically, though I thought it was an excellent game with an equally excellent soundtrack.

dragonglave Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson mind if I ask what combination of weapons you used when you played the game? If you remember.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@dragonglave It’s been a while. I remember liking a lot of them, but really being satisfied by pounding on things with the hammer.

morabit0m Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson @Spotify This is amazing. I personally always hear Knights and Lords by @audiomachine when I read Stormlight’s battle scenes

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@morabit0m I enjoy @audiomachine’s work. Will probably add more of their tracks to the playlist eventually.

AxiesWR Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson Just finished reading White Sand, not sure what you disliked about it, but I loved it. Working into Aether of Night now.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@AxiesWR It’s not terrible, but it needs a very solid trim–maybe 30%–and the characters aren’t as deep as I’d want these days.

kevhughes34 Fri Nov 06
@BrandSanderson Can you give me some context. How many words, roughly, is a complete book?

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 06
@kevhughes34 Most are around 100k words. Stormlight books are 400k.

PandaChristophe Sat Nov 07
@BrandSanderson I’ve just started this series! My coworker suggested them, I think he wins the prize! I hope you never stop writing!

BookBuddyLin Sat Nov 07
@BrandSanderson It’s ok, I forgive you since you’re one of my favorite authors

wes_chu Sat Nov 07
@BrandSanderson Was about to head to bed but you just reminded me I’m a few thousand words behind pace. No sleep for the weary

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 07
@wes_chu Well, good luck to you, then! I often have trouble writing when drowsy, so hopefully you’re not too tired.

BrandSanderson Sun Nov 08
All right! Signing off for the Sabbath. 1160 words on Stormlight 3 today; 12,057 for the week. Will get back to it Monday. Sleep well, all.

mitchwelham Sun Nov 08

MayaLMWhite Sun Nov 08
@BrandSanderson If the Mistborn books were made into movies, how would Allomancy be portrayed? Shift in eye color or something?

BrandSanderson Sun Nov 08
@MayaLMWhite We have thought about using swirling mists and making metal glow blue.

@BrandSanderson How can fantasy authors make a difference in the real world?

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 09
@authorjasonlink Fantasy books are about the real world, seen through a different lens.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 09
@authorjasonlink By removing distractions, and creating something fresh, we can look at problems from a new angle.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 09
Back working on Stormlight 3. Got about 1,300 words earlier today. Should hit 25% (100,000 words) on the book sometime today.

jarxg Mon Nov 09
@BrandSanderson Are you ever coming to México? I’ve started to see your books at some bookstores here.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 09
@jarxg We’re starting to pick up in Mexico, so I really should do a signing next time I visit. I need to do some more Aztec research.

jonficke Mon Nov 09
@BrandSanderson Is your target for that full book 400,000 words?

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 09
@jonficke Yes, matching the other two.

emanwelsch Mon Nov 09
@BrandSanderson 100,000 words is only 25%? That’s crazy even by your standards.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 09
@emanwelsch Both Way of Kings and Words of Radiance were 400k. One of the reasons that Stormlight books take so long…

SierraLCook Mon Nov 09
@BrandSanderson 100,000 is 25%. Wowza. How do you do it? I’ve got 80,000 words on my WIP and only about 60% done.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 09
@SierraLCook That’s good. Don’t try for 400k books at the start. The first few I tried crashed and burned. Practice on something managable.

G_Unit_Pears Mon Nov 09
@BrandSanderson Do you realize how many Stormlight books we would have if you kept this pace up?.. 4/year.. You up for a challenge? (:

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 09
@G_Unit_Pears) That kind of ignores the two years of outlining and half a year of revision these books take…

rmehlinger Mon Nov 09

RoyHartford Tue Nov 10
@BrandSanderson Other than editing for any upcoming releases are you going to be focused only on Stormlight 3 for the near future?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 10
@RoyHartford Yes. It’s my only writing project, save some revisions on a short story, until it is done sometime next spring/summer.

VictoriaLOsborn Tue Nov 10
@BrandSanderson you do know that nano requires only 50k words and your Stormlight series of books has a few more words than just 50k

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 10
@VictoriaLOsborn I rarely do NaNo “officially.” I just post my wordcounts to, hopefully, give other writers a boost and some moral support.

Shane_Oneal Tue Nov 10
@BrandSanderson Does writing more make it easier to knock out so many words in a day?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 10
@Shane_Oneal I shoot for 2k-3k a day, and can do that pretty consistently. Sometimes, more time does not equal more words, though.

law_theawesome Tue Nov 10
@BrandSanderson that’s a lot of words.

Not long until I’m buying a shelf and sticking 3 on it next to 2. I don’t have 1 yet…

law_theawesome Tue Nov 10

Added a new song to the Stormlight 3 Writing playlist. One from the Beyond Earth soundtrack, suggested by a fan. link

Yourigath Wed Nov 11
@BrandSanderson Was hearing the playlist the other day and sudenly “In Case of Trouble” and my head went all Bastion-calamity-like (1/2)

Yourigath Wed Nov 11
@BrandSanderson “This is not going to end well… Odium will win and this is not going to end well…” Tell me I’m just being pessimistic.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 11
@Yourigath I didn’t choose songs on the playlist for their lyrics or meaning, for the most part.

mabchris1000 Wed Nov 11

@BrandSanderson 2 Mistborn left at A gate Simple books. Appreciate your time is signing these. pic

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
@HardbodySlender πŸ™‚ Human the koloss is very happy you found him.

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 12
ATL F Gates Simply Books has a completely different selection of signed books. Say hi to Michael for me if you go. pic

ScubaSteve1219 Thu Nov 12
@BrandSanderson are you there right now? if so just wait a minute.

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 12
@ScubaSteve1219 Sorry. Didn’t see this until I was on my plane. πŸ™

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 12
As usual, the New York Times bookstore (E Gates) has the most of my books in the Atlanta airport. It is tiny, but loves my books.

BeskarTom Thu Nov 12
@BrandSanderson sign some! I’ll be there Sunday

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 12
@BeskarTom Signed them all!

GabeRegier Thu Nov 12
@BrandSanderson have you ever gone in to sign books and got yelled at?

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 12
@GabeRegier Not so far!

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 12
The guy sitting by us on the plane was randomly reading the same book as my wife. @curtisjobling @ben_aaronovitch pic

timothystarner Fri Nov 13
@BrandSanderson with your permission, which cosmere book and series would you suggest to use as an exercise in script writing and adaption?

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
@timothystarner Mistborn would be the easiest. The Emperor’s Soul has been a challenge for us, and would be more interesting to try.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
I discovered what pattern looked like as an infant at the Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park during my #shadowsofself tour pic

Me and @SpellKatie waiting for @BrandSanderson at #yallfest2015 pic

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
@melrailey @SpellKatie I’ll be there soon!

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
I’m in Charleston for #yallfest2015! In case you missed the posts yesterday, I left many signed books in the Salt Lake and Atlanta airports!

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
Charleston, if you missed my signing today, I have another one Saturday. My YALLFest events are free if not sold out link

angryangry_man Fri Nov 13
@BrandSanderson we are driving several hours first thing. I really really hope to get a band for the signing. Been waiting months for it

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
@angryangry_man If you don’t get a band, grab me after one of my events, and I’ll sign for you then.

bnofreeride Fri Nov 13
@BrandSanderson do you have someone to book these events? I don’t want to take from your stories but Greenville, SC would welcome you.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
@bnofreeride Usually, my publisher is the one who handles tours, in conjunction with bookstores.

hlwrites0490 Fri Nov 13
Can I get some recs for fantasy series for someone who loves @BrandSanderson @robinhobb @LordGrimdark @longshotauthor #bookbloggers pls! πŸ˜€

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
@hlwrites0490 @naominovik’s new book, Uprooted, is great–as is her other work. @BrentWeeks is excellent, as is @BrianTMcClellan.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 13
For those following along, my wordcount for Wed on Stormlight 3 was 2289, and yesterday was 1837. None today, as I was at the festival.

TEdunWrites Sat Nov 14
Feel like a kid at end of Easter Egg hunt. found Shadows Of Self! @BrandSanderson pic

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 14
@TEdunWrites Atlanta airport! Nice.

ecalvert67 Sat Nov 14
@scalzi @BrandSanderson Just got back from a trip to London. Guy in the seat next to me had multiple books by each of you on his iPad.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 14
@ecalvert67 Sweet!

tommartell Sun Nov 15
Winning is great. #gpatl

BrandSanderson Sun Nov 15
@tommartell Many congrats, Tom. Well done.

SamJHock Mon Nov 16
Yesterday a customer came back and gushingly thanked me for @robertjbennett’s City of Stairs & @BrandSanderson’s The Way of Kings. #bookslinger

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
@SamJHock Thank you from me as well! (He says gushingly.)

DavidTChristian Mon Nov 16
Seems like I check @BrandSanderson ‘s blog at LEAST twice weekly for info about Stormlight 3

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
@DavidTChristian I’m approaching the end of Part One. (Of five, though the fifth one is often short, and I already have the flashbacks done)

Maven Mon Nov 16
@BrandSanderson @DavidTChristian I wish your pal Rothfuss was as open about his progress ;).

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
@Maven @DavidTChristian Pat has a different writing method. He is very open with fans, but can’t pin himself down on things as well.

zacharybruno Mon Nov 16
@BrandSanderson If I have a song title that includes “Kharbranth” in it, is that allowed?

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
@zacharybruno Yes, it is.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
ATL airport is almost out of my books since last week’s signing blitz. At A gates Simply Books, I signed a @PatrickRothfuss book instead.

OliverKennett Mon Nov 16
@BrandSanderson @PatrickRothfuss Good choice… *Goes to book shop… Get’s ejected for scribbling in your books*

MallencetheLock Mon Nov 16
@OliverKennett @BrandSanderson @PatrickRothfuss Either Brandon or Pat can come to Argentina and scribble on my books, I won’t mind πŸ™‚

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
@MallencetheLock I have been invited and am trying to find the right time to get out to Argentina.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
I have confirmed that ATL B C and A gates bookstores are sold out. (A gates have 2 WoT books.) E gates NYT store probably still has a few.

wildstorm95 Mon Nov 16
@BrandSanderson think I grabbed the last one at ATL F today

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
@wildstorm95 Man, those went fast. Good to know.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
We got home, and the wife said, “Now we have to be responsible, parental adults again.” Then she proceeded to jump up and down on our bed.

tqy_tqg_tql Mon Nov 16
@BrandSanderson will we see more of Hoid in the Stormlight & Mistborn universes? The more references to the multiverse = I crave 2 know more

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
@tqy_tqg_tql The Bands of Mourning has a few more than you’ve seen recently.

GlassJMPrison87 Mon Nov 16
@BrandSanderson just finished Stormlight 2. On to Mistborn. Which of your series’ do you find people generally start with?

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 16
@GlassJMPrison87 Usually Mistborn or Reckoners. You jumped into the deep end first!

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
Writing during the con was tough, but I got 2,300 words during the flights yesterday. Bringing me to around 24,000 #NaNoWriMo words so far.

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
Goodreads Choice Awards final round voting! Nominated are Shadows of Self: link and Firefight: link

dan__sloan Tue Nov 17
@BrandSanderson Sorry Brandon, I had to vote @longshotauthor for the fantastic The Aeronaut’s Windlass. I voted for Firefight though! Good luck!

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@dan__sloan @longshotauthor No prob! It’s a good book. I wouldn’t mind losing to Jim.

iBambam2981 Tue Nov 17
@BrandSanderson is SoS relevant to the cosmere overall? Or is it a filler before the 2nd major mistborn trilogy?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@iBambam2981 SoS is more about the characters, less about the cosmere. (Though there is a tad.) Bands is more cosmere relevant.

iBambam2981 Tue Nov 17
@BrandSanderson is it possible the unknown metal at the end is related to odium? It seemed to cause a lot of hatred in the people it mutated

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@iBambam2981 It is possible.

mattdoveywriter Tue Nov 17
@BrandSanderson I noticed you’re a judge for Writers of the Future now–will you be at the workshop/awards in April?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@mattdoveywriter I haven’t decided yet. I really want to go, but I think I might be too busy at that time.

mattdoveywriter Tue Nov 17
@BrandSanderson Well I owe you a drink at the bar if you do make it–@WritingExcuses is the reason I’ve won and gotten my place booked

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@mattdoveywriter @WritingExcuses Then I shall take you up on that! I’m sure even if I don’t make it, we’ll cross paths eventually.

Lock_is_Light Tue Nov 17
@BrandSanderson ever play Hearthstone?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@Lock_is_Light Afraid not.

Lock_is_Light Tue Nov 17
@BrandSanderson it’s worth checking out. I enjoy magic, but love the convenience of being able to grab a quick game on Hearthstone.

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@Lock_is_Light Thing is, I use Magic as something to do with people. I don’t need another thing to do alone on the computer. πŸ™‚

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@Lock_is_Light My whole life–work, social media, etc–is spent alone on a computer. I like Magic because it makes me be social.

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
At Forbidden Planet in London, I saw these awesome nails based on the UK Mistborn covers. pic

kimnorwood146 Tue Nov 17
@BrandSanderson are you a call of duty fan?

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 17
@kimnorwood146 I have enjoyed the ones I played. But I haven’t played many.

kimnorwood146 Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson have you ever played black ops?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@kimnorwood146 I haven’t, though I’ve considered buying the new one.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
2667 #NaNoWriMo words on Oathbringer (Stormlight 3) yesterday. Book is at around 114k words total. (Finished book should be around 400k.)

mizzelle Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson I joked my total 12+ year Nano output (600K) equals maybe 2 of your books… a little off in that estimate.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@mizzelle Well, both of the recent Mistborn novels were 100-120k words, & the Reckoners books are closer to 90. So not everything is huge.

Radda_in_motion Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson Oathbringer – is that an official title or is it still tentative?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@Radda_in_motion Mostly official.

kocherb Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson That’s a good chunk of book. How long does it usually take to write a those 400K?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@kocherb Depends on if you count all the planning time. I started the first exploratory scenes for this one in summer 2014.

BritneyMMills Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson Would love to interview you for my podcast Writing Unblocked. Let me know if you’re interested!

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@BritneyMMills I enjoy things like this, but you usually have to catch me at a convention or book tour. That’s when I have publicity time.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
Check out this awesome fanart someone gave me of Jasnah (in Shardplate) while I was on my #shadowsofself tour. pic

ShitePost Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson Jasnah has shardplate? Isn’t this somewhat of a spoiler?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@ShitePost It can’t be a spoiler, as the fan simply drew what they imagined. They have no more information than anyone else.

HinaQui Fri Nov 20
@BrandSanderson @ShitePost Don’t the Knights Radiant automatically get shardplate?

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 20
@HinaQui @ShitePost The origins of Shardplate has not yet been revealed, though some things are easy to infer.

Eadams51 Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson sweet, but I always imagined shard plate as…bigger.

michaelhguy Wed Nov 18
@Eadams51 @BrandSanderson I have always imagined it looking like Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor. Is this wrong?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@michaelhguy @Eadams51 Hulkbuster is a bit larger than most Plate, but in your version of the story, you can imagine it however you want.

decio_val Wed Nov 18
I want #TheEmperorsSoul in italian. @BrandSanderson

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@decio_val Got it. We’ll see what we can do.

JubileeHillFarm Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson Two copies of WoT still at A Concourse ATL Simply Books. Too bad we already own it. pic

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@JubileeHillFarm Ha! Cool. Was the Rothfuss book gone?

Noctem63 Wed Nov 18
@JubileeHillFarm @BrandSanderson It seems I stopped at the wrong bookstore when I went through.

ryanszrama Wed Nov 18
@Noctem63 @JubileeHillFarm @BrandSanderson Bummer, me too. Looked on my way to ORD… But flying back through now. Fingers crossed!

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@ryanszrama ORD had some in October. Probably gone by now, but you could have them call around to all the stores.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@ryanszrama ATL has those two WoT books only. (And a Pat Rothfuss book I signed.) Both in the A Gates Simply books.

kimnorwood146 Wed Nov 18
@CassJayTuck have you read steelheart by @BrandSanderson ? I’m on the second one now. So good!!! ????

CassJayTuck Wed Nov 18
@kimnorwood146 @BrandSanderson OH THAT’S RIGHT! I’m gonna read the second one now for sure wow I’m dumb, I forgot!

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@CassJayTuck @kimnorwood146 Third (and last) one in February!

kimnorwood146 Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson is there going to be another book in the Reckoners series?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@kimnorwood146 Calamity in February is the end of the series. More may be done in the world in the future.

kimnorwood146 Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson I am dreading the outcome of the character Firefight. So well written but should I be ready to cry and/or get angry?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@kimnorwood146 You’ll have to wait and see.

G_Unit_Pears Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson Will you be doing a State of Sanderson like you did last December? Thought it was great as we look forward to your books!

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@G_Unit_Pears Yes, I will be.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
Waiting for the Elantris Leatherbound edition? (Details:link) Should be in by Dec 1st at my store and select booksellers.

AStirlingMacD Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson I can’t wait! Will the maps in the leatherbound edition be color?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@AStirlingMacD Yes they will be!

AStirlingMacD Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson that’s amazing! I don’t know if I’ve ever been this excited for a new edition of a book that I already own three copies of.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@AStirlingMacD We’ve also inserted full-color versions of my favorite covers from around the world. We’re very pleased with it.

_readerz Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson are there pictures of this leatherbound edition?? πŸ˜€

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@_readerz I plan to post them on Monday.

ken_hainsworth Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson Are there any pictures available?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@ken_hainsworth I will post them early next week, once we get the books in.

williambneal Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson any update on signed numbered copies? Through Weller?

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@williambneal I don’t know if I’ll number or not; all copies will be signed. Weller should have some, as well as @MystGalaxyBooks and others

Zmann966 Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson Totally want a pre-order option! But I’ll just have to come back Dec 1st and hope they don’t sell out.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
@Zmann966 We’ll give you plenty of warning. I should post about them on Monday, and plan to open sales end of the week, if possible.

fbstj Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson will it get to England/internationally for Christmas?

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 19
@fbstj We will post shipping deadlines for the holidays once we have the books in hand for sure. I hope there will be time.

BrandSanderson Wed Nov 18
Worked a Stormlight 3 “Story within a story” today. (Like the Wandersail or Fleet.) Called, for now, The Girl who Stole God’s Light.

mistborn_avatar Wed Nov 18
@BrandSanderson Is this supposed to be Lift? She did gain the ability to create stormlight from metabolizing food from the Nightwatcher.

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 19
@mistborn_avatar You will have to see. πŸ™‚

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 19
The Signed Page is giving away an ARC of The Bands of Mourning. link

juicysingh Thu Nov 19
@BrandSanderson Never get to go to American airports often (I’m Canadian) but I am going to LAX this weekend. Did you sign any books there?

PeterAhlstrom Thu Nov 19
@juicysingh Brandon has not been to LAX recently at all, unfortunately.

juicysingh Thu Nov 19
@PeterAhlstrom πŸ™ That is lame. @BrandSanderson books are the first I’ve read in a while that I want to actually buy and keep!

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 19
@juicysingh @PeterAhlstrom LAX is tough–they just don’t have good bookstores, and the airport layout is very divided.

BrandSanderson Thu Nov 19
Working on publicity and marketing details for Calamity‘s release, instead of writing, today. Maybe will have some time later.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 20
The Waygate Foundation is doing a charity drive and you get to help choose where the money goes. Check it out here:

LostCadence Fri Nov 20
@BrandSanderson Looking for a creative writing gift for Fantasy/SF writer. Beyond linking Writing Excuses, suggestions? Books, toolkits,etc?

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 20
@LostCadence Hmm… Maybe music that fits the mood of the stories they write. (Or something like a music subscription service gift card.)

mikezentz Fri Nov 20
@BrandSanderson I love how often you use the moral argument between ends and means in your books.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 20
@mikezentz Thanks!

rmehlinger Fri Nov 20
Question for @BrandSanderson: Has a Feruchemist ever broken the sound barrier?

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 20
@rmehlinger You’ll have to read into the future and see.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 20
Phone calls with agents and publicists prevented actual wordcount yesterday. But today, I passed 30k words for the month on Stormlight 3.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
Tor is giving away (US/CA) 15 copies of the new edition of Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians on Goodreads. link

Time to do a little late night writing on Stormlight 3. Anyone out there working on their #NaNoWriMo project tonight?

dperabeles Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson hey brandon, when are going to ship signed copies of your book to Mexico ? πŸ™

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@dperabeles Does the store on my website (link) not ship to Mexico? I thought that it did.

dperabeles Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson sadly it doesn’t, I’ve tried to buy several times πŸ™

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@dperabeles Hmmm. I’ll ask my shipping manager and see what is up. Drop me an email through my website, and I’ll update you that way.

Justin_T_Call Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson Right here. Second volume in my fantasy series. Hard to keep up the pace, though (had to ship board games to KS backers).

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@Justin_T_Call Yeah, I can imagine the work that would take.

howard_corey Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson make sure to make this one longer than WoR. Or longer than both first books combined.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@howard_corey First is reasonable; second, a little tough. πŸ™‚

sneaky_monkee Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson Catching up on Doctor Who instead tonight.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@sneaky_monkee A worthy goal.

Hexy27Bernie1 Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson I’m working on a bottle of Bourbon. That count for anything?

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@Hexy27Bernie1 πŸ™‚ Take a shot every time you read someone cocking their eyebrow in a book.

KaciHill Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson Me! I’ve been trying to catch up to your wordcount (for NaNo only, not the whole book), but I think you got a bit ahead.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@KaciHill The last few days were bad for me, so you might have passed me up. I’m at 31k.

Bethanyrambles Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson Yes! Doing something as complex as Stormlight, do u write the chapter in the order we see, or do u stick with 1 char longer?

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@Bethanyrambles For ones this complex, I write a character sequence, relying on an outline to keep viewpoints in sync.

irothtin Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson Too far behind to hit 50k this month unless I’m writing something like 4000 words a day. Slow progress still happening.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@irothtin That’s fine. I’ve always thought that choosing a manageable goal and shooting for that is the best way to go.

SarahTwinkie Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson Just had some coffee to boost me and my word count. Lots of staring at the blinking cursor. #NaNoWriMo2015

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@SarahTwinkie You could always have ninjas attack. πŸ™‚

SarahTwinkie Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson That’d shake things up, but I’m crap at fight scenes. Maybe ninjas who like a side of witty banter w/ their violence . . .

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@SarahTwinkie That’s always best.

raven_oak Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson @davidfarland Taking a break to #Fallout4 but to those writing this PM, go! go! go!

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21

Chiriplock Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson might be a bit late, just want you to know that i’m from Chile and i’m dying for stormlight 3

VictoriaLOsborn Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson I am my goal 1k words per hour #NaNoWriMo

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@VictoriaLOsborn That’s pretty fast. I usually hit around 500.

AdinaNorth Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson yep. About to hit 40k. Only about half through the story though.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@AdinaNorth Nice!

ClarElizabeth4 Sat Nov 21
@BrandSanderson yes! Plot hole filled during evening yoga so gotta get on it. Took a kind of dark turn though. Good for night writing

lord_tolkien Sat Nov 21
@brandsanderson where are you up to?n

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21
@lord_tolkien Just over 30k. If I want to hit 50, I’ll need to buckle down next week.

BrandSanderson Sun Nov 22
1044 words in the short writing time I was able to squeeze in. I’m pleased, though I have lots to do next week to hit my goal. Good night!

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 21

hey @BrandSanderson please explain how (+ why!!!) there are koloss descendants. I know about the birds and the bees but…why would anyone?!

BrandSanderson Tue Nov 24
@dominique___h Koloss who breed end up with someone “koloss blooded” like you’ve seen. They have to accept the spikes to be come full koloss

1,300 words today. (It’s a holiday in the states. Only managed to get to work after everyone else went to bed.) Roughly 8k to go #NaNoWriMo

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
Steelheart is being featured on Audible’s Treat Yourself Black Friday Sale for only $4.95. You can find it here:

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
My store has cool stuff like T-shirts, Mistborn jewelry, signed books including Stormlight and Legion hardcovers. link

Al_Farseer Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson Had the Vin shirt in my cart, but the shipping price is almost as much as the shirt πŸ™

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@Al_Farseer Yeah. πŸ™ We don’t add a surcharge. That’s just what the postal service charges us.

RoostieJDio Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson Your t-shirts are higher quality than a lot of other authors shirts as well. Recommended by me.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@RoostieJDio I’ll pass that on to Kara (my store manager) and our T-Shirt guy (who is local.) They try very hard.

@BrandSanderson Brandon never stop writing! Your books are incredible I cannot wait for #TheStormlightarchivebook3 #Oathbringer

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@futuredreams35 Thanks!

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
Idaho Falls! I am signing Saturday at 4:00. Details here: link

AvanPoker Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson Master Sanderson, any chance of you coming to Brazil? Any chance Stormlight getting published in Portuguese? Love you! <3

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@AvanPoker Both are very close to happening. My visit won’t be next year, but should happen before too long.

AvanPoker Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! REALLY? Any idea who the translator for Stormlight will be? Mistborn and Elantris weren’t so good in PT

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@AvanPoker I’ll look into the translator. It would help if you sent us an email explaining what you didn’t like about the translation.

AvanPoker Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson What address should I use? I tried contacting the publisher, but no luck.

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@AvanPoker There’s an email form on my website. Stormlight will depend on the Mistborn books doing well, publishers have expressed interest

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@AvanPoker If there is a publisher or translator you particularly like, that will be very useful information for us going forward.

AvanPoker Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson Lastly, there is a federal translator in my University who’s doing his Master’s translating Stormlight. Name’s Paulo Manes

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@AvanPoker This is great information. @PeterAhlstrom, will you note these names for us to use in talking to publishers in Brazil?

BrandSanderson Fri Nov 27
@AvanPoker Even better is if you could suggest some fantasy books that were translated well, so we could try to get that translator.

BurnsCorp Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson a Mistborn in Bloodborne confirmed. pic

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
@BurnsCorp Ha. Which outfit is that? Is it from the DLC?

e_chemyst Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson is there a unique symbol that represents Allomancy? Instead of just the individual metals?

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
@e_chemyst We usually use tin as the official symbol, just because we like how it looks.

tpdudley Fri Nov 27
@BrandSanderson what are you reading right now? Read both wax and Wayne books over thanksgiving. Great books!

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
@tpdudley Just finished a book, and been thinking of re-reading The Lions of Al-Rassan, a favorite of mine.

DeadAsHellHP Sat Nov 28
@BrandSanderson Do allomancers smell or taste different due to the metal in their system? I’m only 190 pages into Mistborn.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
@DeadAsHellHP Most do not. (Hope you enjoy the book!)

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
2k words today. Only 2 days (not counting Sunday) to get 6k more before month’s end. Doable, but tomorrow’s signing will slow me #NaNoWriMo

iBambam2981 Sat Nov 28
@BrandSanderson I wish Mistborn was made into a movie or HBO series, any chance of that happening?!

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
@iBambam2981 Not much of one, but a film might happen.

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
To all my readers in or near Idaho Falls, I am signing right now at the Barnes & Noble at the Grand Teton Mall! pic

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
Saw this during my signing at the Barnes & Noble in Idaho Falls. You’re welcome. pic

BrandSanderson Sat Nov 28
For those who couldn’t make it tonight, I left a bunch of signed copies at the Barnes & Noble in Idaho Falls. pic

AnemoneTea Sun Nov 29
Everything’s a WIP atm, so here’s some old ones of Elend & Sazed from @BrandSanderson’s ‘Mistborn’ series… pic

BrandSanderson Sun Nov 29
@AnemoneTea These are fantastic.

BrandSanderson Mon Nov 30
