I know you probably won't care but I went to a book signing today and met my hero/idol Brandon Sanderson. He did some readings of what he's been working on, signed some books and for those willing to stay answered some questions. I was one of those devout few who stayed, as most of the crowd came because he's finishing the Wheel of Time series.

It was an awesome exprience I got some good writing tips from him and got to see that he wasn't just a name on a cover. He was really funning and very encouraging to me. The cool part was he grew up in my homtetown and knew my family so meeting him was proof it can be done. I'm a little jealous of my aunt and uncle though. (They went out to dinner with him.)

Points:


'I'm going to die; if this wasteland doesn't kill me the Avatars will. I'm the last Technomancer; as I go so goes my culture.' The thought was serene, not fearful at all. If he was going to die, he'd die fighting; he'd make sure that the Technomancers were never forgotten. Morshan Sakru: The Last Technomancer would be a name all Avatar would shutter at the thought of for etenity. Morshan now knew what happened to a man who had nothing left to live for but vengence: he became a monster.

I doubt it, that wasn't exactly something I found impotant when talking to my idol.

Well, first off his writing is amazing; he makes J.k. Rowling look like Dr. Suess in comparrision. More improtantly though is that he's very down to Earth, the success hasn't gone to his head. He was very laid back and funny and incredably encoraging to future writers like me. Most of all, he writes for the same reason I do: for the thrill and enjoyent of it; he loves that he doesn't have to get up till noon and that his money problems are taken care of but that's not his main concern. It was basicly like talking to you, Grano, or Solomon except he's famous and writes ten times better than you guys. laugh.gif tongue.gif

You haven't read his books. The man is a literary genius. Period.
