    Interview: Jan, 2012

    Is it significant that Miles said that the "men of gold and red" would come and rule? Is there a connection between this and the "gold and red" cigar box that Miles keeps The Suit's comings and goings on?

    Brandon Sanderson (Reddit.com)

    This is all very significant.

    Interview: Apr, 2012

    Brandon Sanderson

    Brandon was talking about the differences between his writing and Jimís, and choosing not to try and match styles because it couldnít be done. He describe it as 'I do serviceable prose, where Jim wrote beautiful prose', and that there have been scenes heís come to where heís simply had to say 'I just have to do this my way, thereís nothing for it'.

    He spoke then of Jimís ability to layer subtle foreshadowing, which is something heís never had to do outside of his story behind the story [heís referring to the greater cosmos of his own works, the whole, Shards of Adonalsium and Hoid storylines that go on in the background]. He said it has been a real challenge to catch all the balls that Jordan left in the air, and that sometimes you can see that. ĎSome he caught smoothly, others he snatched from the air and slammed on the table. Some he even just said 'this happened'.

    Finally he spoke of plotting, and how sometimes Jordanís notes have said two contradictory things Ďmaybe Iíll do this, or maybe Iíll do this other completely opposite thingí. Brandon said he then often had to choose between them, or sometimes choose a third thing entirely.
