Is it a failure if something you promised comes to pass? ;)
The book has not came. Time to sharpen my blades
By "I have failed you" what you really mean is that Skysworn is done and you're just teasing us with the release, right?
How could you do this to us Will? (Breaks down in uncontrollable sobbing.)
You have failed me for the last time, Commander...
The moon has blotted out the sun, what better time could there be to announce a new book...
Then we are all doomed...
Hey just noticed something in Blackflame, I thought it was sort of funny. Could be intentional or not.
"Eithan slammed into the ground a second later, face-first, kicking up a cloud of dust."
But Eithan slipped because it was raining. Wouldn't that be a cloud of Mud, technically? or Wave of Mud?
Perhaps it was due to the nature of the dirt surrounding the Blackflame trial, being constantly scorched etc...
Or maybe he was going too fast and went straight through the wet stuff down to the dry...
While Will may have worded it so it could SEEM like Eithan fell due to poor footing... Realistically, can you honestly believe someone who can sense every physical detail within an undetermined, but exceptionally large area, would fall because of a slippery rock? Or poor footing? Instead, look at the moment he fell... Lindon was having an intimate moment with Yerin... The one thing Eithan told them NOT to do. From my perspective, Eithan fell like that on purpose, specifically to break up that moment (As he could certainly hear and sense it going on from above), and did so in order to make it look inconspicuous.
My point being, Eithan said he fell because it was raining, but there was no mention of it being wet where Lindon and Yerin were, so it probably was just BS and where they were was still dry, hence the dust... lol, sorry if I got a little carried away.
In Soulsmith Eithan used an enforcement technique that makes his body fall slower. He knows what he's doing ; )
Actually why is it raining at all? It's a mountain in the middle of a desert. Does the red flower familiy just sprinkle water everywhere at night?
He does say it cleared up just in time... maybe he brought some RedFlower to "sprinkle some water" looool.
He said that it JUST started to rain son the ground was still kinda dry. I caught that too and asked in the earlier Reddit post.
I just thought the trials were underground and that Eithan was on his way to visit them and he slipped and fell in above ground.
They were in a very steep valley.
You have failed. The Hunter comes for you.
I look at this way: At least you keep your promises.

Yeah, only a few hundred people have to die to invent something that someone else already invented!

Why do we fall, Mr. Wight? So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
But really- I check this blog like 3 times a day and even multiple times at like 2am, despite there being no way you'd update us at 2am. Please- give us an update 😭
Using an RSS feed reader is great for this. I keep track of a few author sites this way in addition to regular news. Right now using Feedly.
Will here's to delayed gratification!!! Be great to see it whenever it appears!!!
Ya killing us man, killing us!!!
There is no failure....only progress. You go this Will!
I for one am just happy to know that Skysworn is in the works. As a side note, is this where you will be answering questions now? The other comments section has become... bloated, especially on mobile.
Actually, i barely noticed anything where i live.
Yeah, we were supposed to have 80% coverage where I live and it was raining all day... it didn't even darken that much.
Too disappointed to post anything witty
If only you hadn't been working on OKAK... YOU'RE FIRED!
Again? Men, place this failed existence under house arrest - with no internet!
But he seems like a Google docs person
Google docs? Blasphemy!!! No tissue paper either!!
We all saw the signs we knew it was coming...
Once again OKAK has been delayed...
(2 weeks ago) well at least we will have skysworn soon.
(now) I was wrong, now he will rain down the fury of the divine as the earth darkens for the second time this week....
Maybe the moon was just cutting in front of the sun to check for the next installment in the Willverse. Moons can be impatient like that.
Will! You have failed this fan base. Do better there will be no more chances
Hey Will I don't know is this good place to post this but here are some questions
1.At the end of the cradle series are you intending for Lindon to be roughly as powerful as Ozriel was before his ascension.
2. What is the jade cycling technique of the path of the infinite sword (sword sage's and Yerin's path in case I miss remembered the name), and what is it like.
3. Are we going to see Wei Shi Kelsa (Lindon's sister) again before his return to the sacred valley, and if we're are you planing for her to appear in a book or in a short story.
next question may contain spoilers so I understand if it is left unanswered here
4. What type of iron body did the original blackflames (humans not dragons) use.
Do you... actually want him to answer these and spoil it for you? Three of your questions also have obvious answers, too...
The Path of the Endless Sword. Sorry I'm a nit-picker.
You have forgotten the face of your father....
And should be sent West
Where's rent-a-mob when you need one?
Every time I see someone post something with OKAK in the post, I think of someone gagging after getting punched the throat halfway through saying "Oh-something"... Or perhaps after finding out that the tacos that you were eating are actually stuffed with tofurkey.
Will... I'm guessin you're stressin. So keeping you in my prayers.
Am I the only one confused?
I think I got the gist of some of what Joseph said but it was very confusing
Sorry. I was suffering extreme coffee deprivation. It was just something that struck me a little bit. Sounding OKAK out sounded like someone gagging a bit...
It's cool Joe I think we've all done something like that at one point or another
Like when ur in school and say OH- then realize the teacher is right next to you?
Not at all what I meant. What did Will fail at? Lo!
Hey will could we make a place on here where we can all post fan fiction paths and such or should I see if I can get a Reddit post pinned to the top of the iteration101 channel?
While searching for any replies from you, I've discovered that having a name that is also a critical part of the English language greatly complicates searching. Just frustrated enough to feel pointing this out is worthwhile. Hope you enjoy my pain.
I feel ya. Ctrl-f just doesn't cut it.
Thanks for being a total screw up Will. The eclipse was kind of cool. :)
Off topic, I think Simon had a cameo in Andrew Rowe's, 'Sufficiently Advanced Magic'. I believe it's about a third of the way in. Could be wrong I guess.
You are not wrong. Will and Andrew have done some beta reading for each other and that cameo was deliberate.
Also, the swordsman might also be based on a valinhall person.
Will you include an eclipse in skysworn? You know for reasons
In Unsouled you stated that Cradle is only an infant iteration. Does that mean that citizens of a normal power iteration will be born more powerful than Northstrider and Luminous Queen?
I believe it is talking about the age of the iteration itself not power level. Will please correct me if I'm wrong
Cradle is the origins of the Abidan so it's not based on age. I believe it's based on the people of the iterations understanding of the greater universe.
Will, I need this book soon! Please be finished soon!😢
Everyone posts funny and witty stuff and I am neither of those, so I feel like I shouldn't be commenting. 😄
Woah, there interesting marsupial! I'm seeing some negativity from you and I think you need to redirect your thought process a bit. While it is true that a lot of the comments here are clever, and in some make me laugh like I have gained a third lung, that does not decrease the quality of your comment in any way. In fact, I would judge that the truthfulness and honesty of your comment helps this blog post. Not only have you clearly stated the feeling of everyone who is a fan of Will Wight and the Cradle series, you have also given them a comment that is relatable to them. Do not fret over your less than subtle comment friend. Instead rejoice over its simplicity.
Thank you Sir Wolpertinger
Will, you only failed to let us know what is truly going on. You leave a cryptic note that you failed but no follow up. Are the books not coming out at all or just delayed? It's killing me looking at the post each day to glimpse what you might say if anything, just so I know about any news.
I'm not sure if you're being sardonic or not. If you're serious, then take another look at Will's post two posts prior to this one, titled Hey Look, T-Shirts!
The last line of that post is "I can't promise much, but I can promise you this: if I don't have another book out by August 21st, there will be a total eclipse of the sun."
He did not have another book out by August 21st, so he said here that he "failed" while linking to a page about the solar eclipse. It's just meant to be humorous.
IM SO SAD YOUR MOM CAME IN AND TAUGHT IN MY CLASS IN ENGLISH AND I MISSED IT I WAS OUT SICK WWWAAAAAAHHHHHHH (anyway tell her she raised the awesomest writer ever)
P.S. Ms. Tomko told me
P.P.S. I know its bad form to comment on these with stupid stuff so you have an email I should use to contact you? I tried the one that you send the short stories with and I got no response ;(
You are only allowed to say weird stuff if you put an I in between the E and T. Ok?
Has anyone else noticed that Will hasn't replied to anyone on this comment thread?
WHY will WHY>?????? You failed us
