I'm less than halfway through Winter's Fury, which I enjoy very much. There seem to be more keywords than the other books. I love keywords, since they let you branch out more in the story, and they seem to add some mystery when the text asks if you have one ("Ashes? I haven't seen that yet. Where do I find it, and where will it lead?"). Video games and apps keep track of your progress for you, but I like this bit of personal record-keeping. It seems to help me get more involved in the book.
The problem with having a lot of keywords is, I start writing them down in the order I find them, then start losing track. I even split the Notes/Keywords section into alphabetical columns (A-H, I-R, S-Z) to try keeping them in order. So I was hoping you could post on the forum an alphabetical list of all keywords used in the story. The keywords seem vague enough that they won't spoil anything. I could then copy them in ink, and make/erase checks next to the keywords in pencil, as needed. I did this for the great Fabled Lands series, where I had FOUR whole books of keywords on one page, plus all the book pages where I'd check boxes. So I'm not afraid of the extra work Thanks.
