Heading for the Hills!
As we speak, I'm headed out the door for a two-week trip!
Week 1: New York City, where I fully expect to meet the Ninja Turtles. If there's time, I'll hop on over to the neighboring New Donk City to see Mario.
Week 2: Israel, where I don't have any idea where we're going and will leave that up to the tour guide. If I meet the Ninja Turtles there, I will be surprised.
I'm coming back on February 1st, but between now and then, I will be dead. RIP.
Know that I died as I lived: on my laptop.

Heh I just met Rob Paulson at an Animaniacs event in San Francisco last weekend. He voiced Yakko.
1/18/2018 02:11:16 pm
Rest in peace Will! If you stop by Boston I will buy you some $35 mac & cheese.
1/18/2018 03:25:44 pm
It's official. Will is a great elder. How else can he casually die and come back? My votes on Kerlac as he trade with humans. Books for brains. And money on the side.
1/19/2018 07:48:14 am
Damn, he fooled us all this time.
1/21/2018 07:44:29 pm
What if he is a blood shadow?
1/24/2018 09:06:07 am
Blood shadows seem to only possess animal level intellect. Such a grand plan is only befitting of a great elder....

Hey Will on wuxiaworld is your username MrVoid?
1/18/2018 09:44:01 pm
Welp that sets the book back another 2 months
1/19/2018 04:53:44 pm
He'll be back better and more refreshed than before. Ready to write tales other-worldly horrors and the heroes that will stop them. Just wait and see.
1/20/2018 01:16:49 pm
While that's probably true he will also be physically exhausted and have gotten little to no writing done for two weeks.
1/20/2018 10:50:35 pm
This is true, but everyone needs some down time. Bedsides, there are other things to do to keep occupied! I personally am immensely looking forward to playing the new Monster Hunter game which is coming out next Friday on Xbox One and PS4.
1/18/2018 11:10:08 pm
I don't know how you can bear to only visit Israel for just one week! I hope you had a chance to blow someone else's candle in Hezekia's tunnel!
1/19/2018 06:29:23 am
Sounds like an awesome trip! Have a great time and we look forward to your undead ascension upon your return.

Ah, I too went on a trip to Jerusalem to meditate on the Dao. May you find enlightenment on your journey.
1/19/2018 02:29:10 pm
Enjoy your trip!!!!
1/20/2018 11:16:19 am
I expect a full summary of your trip and what you learned when you come back in the form of a five-paragraph essay submitted as a blog post.
1/20/2018 11:31:56 am
Wait, don't they have internet in New York? Why are you going completely offline?
1/20/2018 02:08:25 pm
He's going on vacation. If he replies to one post then he has to reply to them all. I bet he'll break down and peek in on us at some point, but doing work on a vacation makes it not a vacation.

Tboy, i equally hate and love you(for suggesting MoL) on one hand the story is amazing and i have to place it somewhere around wills books. On the other hand, the story isn't done, so now I'm waiting on two authors.... I have to find a way to delete my own memories
2/5/2018 09:22:36 am
Haha, sorry about that. Have you checked the authors fiction press? There's a few more chapters on there that haven't been added to the ebook version. Failing that, You'll just have to wait for the new chapter this Sunday like the rest of us.
1/21/2018 10:19:54 am
You can't die yet. You don't have HBO writers to finish your stories for you. Not till then.

Isn't it already a well-known fact that Will Wight is undead? That means that he isn't really in any sort of a different state between now and feb 1st...
WILL IS DEAD
1/27/2018 12:01:11 pm
IT'S BEEN NEARLY TEN DAYS SINCE WE'VE HEARD FROM WILL. R U DEAD WILL!?!?
(not) will wight
2/7/2018 02:46:02 pm
yes i b dead. i b rezurected naow but i came bak without teh abbility 2 spell or right, so know moar books. =( =( =(
OKAK release date
1/27/2018 12:05:28 pm
So I did a little algebra to guesstimate Will's progress on OKAK. If he's reached the 7% mark after four moths that means to reach the hundred percent mark he'll need 54.14285 months. Or about 4.76 years.
1/28/2018 08:47:36 am
Whenever fans start doing math you know you're in trouble.
2/4/2018 09:15:19 pm
Some books take 10 years. It sucks, I know.

2/7/2018 02:43:01 pm
Will likes to keep his progress bar low so we're not expecting the book any time soon. In reality the last 60% will probably be done in a blink relative to the rest. He just tends to keep a bit of a buffer in case he needs to say, rewrite half the book because his beta readers really hate it.
1/28/2018 02:43:07 pm
It makes me sad that he's visited NYC but won't be doing a book signing. Guess it's hard to do one when you're self-published and primarily digital and allergic to cameras.
1/28/2018 06:50:02 pm
Yeah, it seems like you really need to hunt for him if you want to meet Will in person. Maybe I can go to Orlando and set up an ambush.
1/28/2018 09:10:23 pm
Most of those book signings are set up by publishing houses anyway, which Will doesn't have. Plus were would he go to set one up? He doesn't have any books at Borders, Barns and Noble, or any of the other bookstore chains.
1/29/2018 05:16:03 am
Omg, that's exactly what I was thinking about! Except I don't have a basement so it would be harder for me.
1/29/2018 07:30:58 am
Alright I've been thinking about it and that last post of mine was kind of creepy. I would delete it but there is no delete button. Everybody just pretend you can't see it.
1/28/2018 09:12:15 pm
Will! I made it to the 20,000 word mark on my story but it suddenly got much harder... Idk why but every time I reach this length I end up giving up the story. I just lose my infatuation with it and want to change everything and write a new story with new ideas.
I ascend from Death to answer this one question, and this one alone, before returning to the grave.
1/30/2018 09:11:36 am
We miss you Will the first can't come fast enough.
1/30/2018 09:22:24 am
I see. I suppose this feeling is why 99% of people who try writing never finish. I've always wanted to write the kind of books that I read, but I guess reading developed authors like yourself sets the bar too high for a first novel.
1/29/2018 03:55:07 pm
Hey Will I would like to recommend the game Kingdom Come Deliverance to you. It comes out February 18.
1/29/2018 04:15:15 pm
Sorry it's actually February 13'th not the 18. And you're the son of a blacksmith not a farmer.
1/29/2018 06:50:12 pm
It's always a blacksmith. lol
1/30/2018 09:55:41 am
I too have decided to write a story as part of an elaborate seven stage plan to trick Will into becoming my friend.
1/30/2018 09:58:16 am
Gosh darn-it. Now that I re-read that post it sounds creepy as well. Wordpress really needs to have an edit & delete post feature. I should just go back to lurking.

1/30/2018 10:41:11 am
I got a question.
1/30/2018 03:59:40 pm
If you want all the stories from the past there is a website somewhere, but all future stories will be emailed to you.

Hey Will did you ever get back to reading Desolate Era? I know you dropped it fairly early on way back when because it felt like the Ji Ning was the best, but the world has 4 more expansions in scope to bring in stronger enemies after you left, and 20 more books.
2/6/2018 05:33:02 am
I started reading this thanks to you and it is awesome! Domo Arigato Gozaimasu.
2/6/2018 01:51:35 pm
I first learned of DE from this blog. Took me 2 weeks to read it all.

2/3/2018 06:05:36 am
I don't see why not. They're a decentralized currency because anybody powerful enough can make them. Also, they're always being consumed by less powerful people using them for cultivation.
2/3/2018 11:44:00 pm
I thought only pure madra or mining devices could make them with the exception of lord level scales which can be made by any lord.
2/5/2018 09:26:26 am
That's true. I guess what I meant was you don't have a centralized entity who is the only one allowed to make money. Scales are innately valuable so anybody can make them and they're just as good.
2/3/2018 05:09:00 pm
Will have you considered my offer to purchase your books with Garlicoin?
^ Not Will Wight
2/3/2018 05:09:55 pm
Whoops I thought that was the address bar. I'm not Will Wight everybody. I thought that would send my message to Will Wight but it didn't, it posted it as a name.
2/4/2018 09:20:56 am
This has been a roller coaster.
^ Not Will Wight
2/4/2018 12:36:34 pm
In my defense it was late Saturday night when I posted that at 2 am, right after I came back from the bar. I was too inebriated to understand how technology works.
2/4/2018 09:04:28 pm
I visit this site at least once a week to see if there is a news update on when the next Cradle comes out even though I know it won't be for a while..
2/5/2018 09:27:35 am
Yeah, I too have a short attention span and if I dont get an update for like 3 weeks I lose the habit of checking.
2/5/2018 11:55:15 am
It depends on how close a book is to coming out. For example right now he is at 7% (as far as we know its probably like 40% by now) so I only check the website weekly unless I'm bored in which case I'm here scrolling through the comments.

Meeting the ninja turtles is fine, but if they ask you if you wanna see their master you should definitely decline. He's a giant rodent that rummages through people's trash. You don't wanna talk to those kinds of people.
2/6/2018 07:33:20 pm
2/6/2018 08:28:42 pm
Think you got the wrong person. Based on Google, you must be thinking of Will Wright not Will Wight. No r.
2/7/2018 02:07:18 pm
Id still watch any ted talk he puts out.
2/7/2018 02:14:57 pm
Did you by chance mean this video?

Does Will usually go inactive for periods of time like this? He's not dead, right?
2/13/2018 10:02:14 am
No, don't bother him. This happens fairly frequently whenever he's really either focused on writing or reading something new. Or some combination thereof. We will hear from him in a week or two either way when he's ready for a break.
2/17/2018 11:18:26 pm
Did anyone else read the Christmas short story and see the part about wei shi kelsa being on the run? Hmm intresting.
