Brandon Sanderson Records His Writing Process

After wrapping his work on the final book of Robert Jordan‘s Wheel of Time series, fantasy writer Brandon Sanderson will let his fans watch him write a chapter of his new book online.

Using the Camtasia screen recording software, the novelist has begun to videotape his entire writing process for a chapter, starting with his initial notes (video embedded above). Would you do this for your readers?

Here is more about the process: “New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson writes a chapter from the sequel to The Way of Kings, to be published in late 2013 (hopefully) or early 2014. This is the real-time version. After all of the videos have been uploaded we’ll make a high-speed version of the chapter.” (Link via)
