    Interview: Feb 20th, 2015


    How do you think about reddit or the 17th shard and the Coppermind-- All the different theories going around? Do you ever find one that hits your plot line or something?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Oh yes. I donít change it. Iím just like ďThereís a smart person.Ē But what I learned in Wheel of Time fandom was that you canít-- There is madness that lies in trying to change things once someone figures it out. Like particularly with the way that I do my plots, thereís foreshadowing so thereís someone whoís going to be able to figure it out. If they /canít/ figure it out I havenít put in the foreshadowing properly. So almost everything that Iíve put into the books, /somebody/ knows. Some of them are really obvious and everybodyís got it, and Iím okay with that because the people who donít read the forums, a few of them will be surprised, but mostly it will be like ďYeah of course we know this Brandon. Of course we know yada yada yadaĒ I donít--I donít *mutters* I think youíve figured it out-- But there are things like that. But there are other little things that there are a dozen theories on, and one of themís right.


    You are probably going to get that when thereís large populations...

    Brandon Sanderson

    Thereís large populations and thereís proper foreshadowing, somebody is going to get it, and I think thatís appropriate.

    That is widely assumed to be the case.

    Do you ever go on the 17th Shard just to see what randomness we do there?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Not often, but yes.
