Brandon Sanderson To Finish WoT!!!!!!!


The Book Swede & His Blog: Brandon Sanderson To Finish WoT!!!!!!!

I came home to this article plastered all over my handy duty RSS Fantasy list of at least 20 fantasy blogs.  Very exciting news!  I believe I wrote about Sanderson’s “Mistborn” last month, how I enjoyed it, but I believed the characters could have been a little fuller drawn, especially the secondary ones.  But for some reason, this feels like a really good fit for Jordan’s voice to me.  I feel like Sanderson’s prose is very similar in style,  and there’s something about the way he handles dialogue that makes me think that Jordan’s book is in good hands.   Call it a gut feeling.  I would love to hear from others who have read both authors, see what they think.

Personally, I’m in the thick of panic for Christmas gifts.  I panicked when I was looking at some website and it said “15 days to Christmas!”  The last week has been taken up by a little Guild Christmas Carol we filmed on a lark, hopefully we’ll post it tomorrow or Wednesday, so now I’m JUST gearing up with brainstorm lists of gifts, and it’s making me whine a lot because I’ve got to get these suckers SENT and I’m pretty sure my 18 year old cousins don’t want a donation to WWF and a little stuffed Panda for Christmas 🙂

Anyway, that’s my assignment for the rest of the week, gifts and doing end of the year estimates for taxes.  Joy.   The good thing is that I started my week out in a really fun way, I took an all day Final Cut class at UCLA extension today!  Man, the nerd in me is purring!  I loved it!  We went over all the basics, as well as cheesy iris transitions, crazy filters, swirling subtitles, I think I’m addicted!  Since everyone is holidaying, my goal over the holiday is to shoot one of the sketches I did while I was in the sketch company at ACME and have fun editing it, because now that I have the know-how, I need to practice to keep learning and reinforce.   I need to do my acting reel too, although the thought of staring at my own face for hours isn’t that appealing.  Maybe I need to work on the narcissism a bit. 🙂

    Once you get started with video editing, you can’t stop! I’m so addicted myself.

    I can’t believe it’s so close to Christmas. It seems like only yesterday I was commenting on how inappropriate it feels to have X-mas decorations up before Thanksgiving.

    I’m very jealous about the FCP class. I’ve been thinking about taking the Intro class (Apple’s FCP 100 class or equivalent) as I’m tired of fumbling around and taking way to long to do simple things. However, the prices on the East Coast are ridiculous. For the intro classes it’s cheaper for me to fly out to LA or NY, pay for a hotel room, and take the class out there. For the longer classes it’s break even.
    I quote Dogbert when I say, “Bah!”

    Once you get in the thick of your own editing, please let us know if the class was worth it. Cheers!

  • Does this mean we’ll actually see WoT books more than once a decade?

    Have fun in the class. The UCLA extension courses are great.

    For those that want to learn FCP and other programs without spending a ton of cash, check out video tutorial sites like VTC and Lynda. I have learned many programs from these sites, and it’s only $30 or so a month.

    Then, use the money you saved on getting the software and a Mac. Those buggers are expensive.

    yay; narcissism!

  • Jeff

    Haven’t read any of Sanderson’s work – probably will now – so will have to trust your judgment on this. 🙂

    Omg, I haven’t done the Online portion of my shopping yet. I hope with shipping it’s not too late…

    Good luck on the Final Cut classes. Does this mean that you’ll be churning out those episodes quicker? 😉

    I had a chance to meet and get book 10 of WoT signed by Robert Jordan. He was a very nice man. Was sad to see him pass away before he could finish the series. It will be great to know that it will finally be finished (been waiting a long time for that lol). I haven’t read any of Sanderson’s work. Just finished The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. I highly recommend that series.
