Mystery Project
« on: May 08, 2005, 05:09:48 PM »
Why am I not surprised?

My vote is that it's NOT the third Mistborn book and NOT an Elantris sequel and NOT a rewrite of something else either, though it may recycle some ideas.

[EDIT: and it's also NOT a novel in the Mystery genre!]

I think it's a story on having a name starting with B.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

I'm guessing it's a YA, which is something he's been saying he should do. Either that or he's going to get married or something like that.

Wait, wait wait...

This looks interesting but seems to have started mid-stream.  Where did this thread really start?

Where it appears to. It refers to the progress progression thingy at the top left of EUOL's site. EUOL has not, to my knowledge, actually posted anything here about it.

I know what it is.   :)

But since EUOL himself has obviously ommited explaining it, I won't do it for him.

Let's just say that it has to do with sand.

If it's White Sand, I lose...

That would be the second complete rewrite on that book!

I do like it, though...was thinking about it the other day, wossname's dead fiance, wondering how that fit into Elantris for half a minute, when I realized it wasn't Elantris at all.

Sorry to burst all of your bubbles, but the "Mystery Project" isn't actually one of my stories at all.  I'm just posting a progress report for a friend of ours, since he doesn't have his own website.  

You see, after a long hiatus, Stet has decided to put pen to paper again.  He's trying something a little different this time, and I'm sure that he'll reveal it eventually.  (Probably not until it's done, though.  You all know what a drama queen he is.)

I, of course, don't have time for such tangents, since I have to be a good boy and work on the MISTBORN trilogy for Tor.  

By the way--Fell, he was wondering if he could borrow 'Cecil' as a pen name.  Are you ever going to use it?

If i ever need a pen-name I'd choose EUOL, just to confuse everyone. :)
