Help Me I'm Being Held Captive
The books have kidnapped me. Someone help.
I'm almost through with both of the final Elder Empire books, which is why I've mostly been radio silent recently, but seriously I've written more in the last few months than I ever have before.
I basically had to start over on these books, since the material I've used for them has been created over the last several years, so my vision for the story and my skill as a writer have both changed over time.
Now I spend my days screaming at my keyboard hoping that the sheer force of my will can produce words faster.
Book review / recommendation coming soon! It's a long-overdue recommendation of Mike Shel's Aching God, which is a dark fantasy that tackles dungeon crawling from a vividly realized new angle. I liked it a lot.
After that, maybe book news. Who knows? Because it depends on how fast I can continue to write.
Now let me see if I have the strength left in my tired fingers to update the progress meter.

Keep going, slave.

I'm with Sam

Sadly I also agree with Sam

If we're all sitting here demanding him for his addictive books like they are drugs.... Who's the real slave?
2/3/2020 09:41:01 pm
Him. I only slobber over his books sometimes

January's almost over, Will. I need my Cradle. I NEED it!

Still happily awaiting these, and still in awe of the ambition and deftness of plotting you've already shown in this series.
1/30/2020 03:48:21 pm
Keep up the good work o master of words and oreos
1/30/2020 03:55:04 pm
Wait, are you being kept in the same dungeon that you had that interview in? How long have you been down there?
1/30/2020 03:56:12 pm
Keep up the good work! We'll be (mostly) patiently waiting.
1/30/2020 04:05:27 pm
No need to rush...just bring us some awesome reads.
1/30/2020 04:40:41 pm
If we start a gofund me and an automatic service to bring you Oreos and milk every Friday for the next 6 months will that help?
1/30/2020 04:42:21 pm
I don't know if writing words is anything like writing code but there have been a few times I have rewritten large blocks of code and when that happens the writing has been profoundly better. I expect the same

I agree, I enjoyed the first two book series but the writing wasn't nearly at the level of Cradle. I'm extremely excited to see where these two books go, and for a quick return to writing WinterSteel!!
1/30/2020 04:54:31 pm
That progress meter... so happy.
An annoyance with a wallet

Wonderful news! and hey, at least you didn't leave us on a cliff hanger with your last bout of silence like you did with your Halloween post.

The Aching God is pretty good. It was a very interesting read. Book two, well, to each his or her own. Still, very much so looking forward to book three. Have you read The Traitor God or God of Broken Things? Those were pretty interesting reads in a very similar setting and tone.
1/30/2020 06:08:24 pm
I knew it! Will became a Writer Incarnation and went on a word rampage.
1/30/2020 06:19:34 pm
He thinks he can escape and actually finish off a good series, how foolish. The Elder Empire will come out when One Piece ends, which is effectively never.
1/31/2020 04:09:51 pm
One piece IS endless. You are right. I NOW HAVE SOMETHING TO COMPARE TO THE RELEASE SPEAD OF OKAK!
1/31/2020 10:24:34 am
In keeping with previous release timeframes, I estimate that we'll have the book(s) by March-April which is still a fantastic pace, especially since there are two books instead of one. Keep up the good work Will! looking forward to reading the conclusion!

If you need words (on Win10), try this:

Foolish mortals! I have Awakened! As soon as Will finishes writing me I will be powerful enough to consume your world and turn everything into a Will Wight novel!
1/31/2020 11:53:59 pm
Don't threaten me with a good time
2/1/2020 05:25:30 pm
Or do! As long as you follow up the threat...

Cradle...? Cradle...? Cr-Cr-Cr-Cr-CRADLE????????/

No news on wintersteel, sigh *folds back into the bed*
2/1/2020 04:33:57 am
Force of will eh? Is that pun intended
2/1/2020 12:27:09 pm
Train you feet to be as nimble as your hands, your toes as fingers.... then lock yourself in your basement and binge youtub...I mean write. Seriously your an inspiration. As hobby writer I am trying to get more serious info writing again as an trucker I am enjoying the stories adding but in audible look forward to bingeing killers and kinge
2/1/2020 09:00:43 pm
Your books have provided a fair bit of entertainment for me. Just wanted to stop in and let you know that your work is greatly appreciated. I look forward to the 8th Cradle book! Keep up the great work man!
2/3/2020 03:17:10 am
Allow me use this opportunity to tell you that I really need another fix of Cradle some time very soon.
2/3/2020 08:02:24 am
Finishing them will be your greatest triumph, Will. Finish them before they finish you. In other words, will you be a King or a Killer?
2/3/2020 09:12:18 pm
Relax, you're nowhere near GRRM levels yet.
Will’s high school buddy

Will, do you still have that red bong you had in high school? Those were some good times. When you finish the books, you should grab old faithful and head out to our old stomping grounds by the park. A,couple of hits and your creative juices will start flowing again. I miss those days. Let me know and I will come meet you.
2/10/2020 10:10:45 pm
Will, I know I am living in my parents basement and you have made it to the big time but don’t leave your old buddy skeeter hanging.
2/8/2020 01:28:58 am
I'm glad that I broke my leg back in 2017... because I wouldn't have found Your Books otherways.
2/22/2020 03:33:49 am
I know first hand what an impressive feat it is to read in a different language (I live in france). Bravo! Will's books are complicated, and if you managed to understand them, awesome. I know i couldn't read a book like will's in french.
2/29/2020 12:06:04 am
@Will Wight, due to a lack of a clear communication to you the author im using your blog for a query.
