I heard yesterday that Robert Jordan has passed away.
The Wheel of Time has played such a significant part of my life and  
imagination, for so many years, that I am very sorry.
For a few years I'd been very frustrated with the quality of writing,  
but earlier this year I was really surprised by how much I thoroughly  
enjoyed book eleven, despite everything.
I'm sorry I was frustrated now: he was ill.
Robert Jordan is the man I credit with making me a plot writer (or  
encouraging a tendency). He inspired me and I lived in that world so  
fiercely throughout my teenage years I would have happily given a  
limb to change realities. Which shows some talent, really.
I thank him.
