The difference between Sanderson and Jordan is that Sanderson actually spends a lot of time writing, so he tends to finish books. He has actually written the last of the Wheel of Time books while he was working on three other novels. Jordan spent an inordinate amount of time dicking around and it took him forever to write one damn book.
You know, kind of like George R.R. Martin, who I also expect to die before he ever finishes The Song of Fire and Ice books.
The Mistborn trilogy was very interesting. His writing got much better in the second and third books. I still prefer Patrick Rothfuss, however.
