    Interview: Sep 4th, 2005

    Matt Hatch

    Skipped [transcription of] question about the quality of writers in North Carolina and The Citadel.

    Robert Jordan

    They somehow get into a discussion about dead mules, and how no one ever sees a dead mule, and how Southern literature is supposed to contain dead mules. Jordan has ridden a mule, by the way.

    Interview: Jun 15th, 2008

    Brandon Sanderson

    Last night I finished a major plot arc of A Memory of Light. This is important, since it's one of the big pieces that Mr. Jordan didn't write himself. (I figured that I would write this chunk early, rather than one of the ones that had a lot of work done on it already. That way, if I did a terrible job, there would be plenty of time for Harriet to set me straight regarding it.) I can't tell you who or what it details, but it turned out really well. I wish I could say more, but . . . well . . . I'm also happy that I can't. I'm very open with the projects I work on; that is my style. However, one of the things about the Wheel of Time has always been that Mr. Jordan releases very little information about upcoming books. That adds to the mystery and the tension, and is part of the Wheel of Time process. I will promise you, though, that just like Mr. Jordan said . . . there are dead mules in the prologue.

    So why even mention this? Well, just to let you know that the book IS continuing. It's going to be awesome. (Also, you should note that I'm at a conference this next week, and will be focusing on revising this chunk of A Memory of Light and doing a new draft of Warbreaker. So, the progress ticker may stall for a week or two. It doesn't factor in editing or revising, only rough drafting.)

    Interview: Feb 22nd, 2013


    Was it your idea for the dead mule in the last book, or was it Robert Jordanís?

    Brandon Sanderson

    That was his idea.


    Well he had one set of dead mules, I didn't know if you wanted to add yours and become a Southern writer too?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Well I can be a partial one.
