So!! Less than a year to go! I first discovered the series in the mid-90's, so I haven't been waiting nearly as long as a long of other fans. But it has been a very long journey, and I'm so glad that Brandon Sanderson has done such a wonderful job completing the series. I must admit that I didn't think this series would end in my lifetime, but I'm it will be nice to finally see how it all turns out. I think it will also be sad to see it coming to an end, after spending so many years together as the characters have become dear, dear friends over the years. But Hooray - only 11 months to go!!
