George Orwell's '1984' is the most classic one I can think of.

Best advice Brandon's given thus far: "Follow your instincts: write what you want to read."

People nowdays can't talk without "like, like, like...."

+OverNightGaming err, writing isn't the same as speaking. I'm more articulate in the former than the latter.

+Yumtoy L I know it's ironic. I would expect students studying writing to express their points a little more clearly, I mean damn.

I know. But if you pay attention to what Sanderson is saying, you'll find out he talks more clearly using much less "like" than other people do. Quite interesting, in my opinion.

I think he mentions David Gemmell somewhere in there too and Steven Erickson.
Kathryn Bigelow (5 years ago)
China Mieville (not sure I spelled that correctly) and Cory Doctorow is the other name he mentions.
varana312 (5 years ago)
Does anyone know which name he drops at 6:24?
varana312 (5 years ago)
No, the interpreter changed. :)
nmartinez18 (5 years ago)
i think the interpreter changed her shirt, anyone else notice that?
