I don't know is this is the right category for this thread.

Feel free to move it to a better place.

I just wanted to say that I would love to see an essay or a compilation of experiences from Brandon on his work on the last WoT books. If I had (which I don't) anything to say about it I would like to see:
- A description of how he got the job.
- How it felt to work on someone elses story - freedom/obligations.
- His take on RJs writing so far, what did RJ do right and what did RJ do wrong. A writers analysis of WoT.
- The way the work was arranged between him and Team Jordan.
- How he structured the work, what was easy and what was difficult.
- His relationship with WoT fandom.
- There are certainly some points of interest that I've missed here.

What do you think?

Yepp know about that, seen it.

I would still like to see a more in depth analysis and some examples of when he did exactly as outlined and when he did it another way.
Basically more details.

The point about getting the job has almost everyone on this site heard, but it should still be included if such a compilation was made.

Maybe it could be a side chapter in the upcoming encyclopedia or maybe BS could post it on his homepage.

I think Brandon wants to do something like this, but Harriet has yet to give him permission for it. I know he doesn't want to reveal exactly who wrote what. I could be thinking of something else.
