Hey Juliana, thnx for the answer. Sorry it took me so long but I just now logged in after so many daysAsha, I can't remember where I first read the 5-book arc thing, but since I get his newsletter that may have been it. But a little google-fu found this:
Brandon: Yes. I conceived The Stormlight Archive as a series dealing with ten characters, where each book took one of the characters and delved deeply into their past and their psychology. Granted, the other characters will appear, as Kaladin is a big part of Words of Radiance even though this volume could be described as Shallan’s book. Since I have those ten characters, and there are ten orders of Knights Radiant, I built a ten-book series with two five-book arcs: five books and then a break, followed by another five books.
I couldn't find anything else, but guessing if he's taking a break in between it may be like the Mistborn books with their 'trilogy of trilogies' set up? I'd love at least a partial conclusion after 5 books.
Sanderson has sort of an anime feel to it at times. Especially around the action sequences when characters hit the ground with rings of dirt and/or energy sending out radial clouds from the ground they just cracked.
