I think he discovered they were cash machines, so why move things along? He'd probably still be writing about Nynaeve's braid and everyone's clothes if he were still alive, I doubt he ever had any intention of finishing the story.
Starting a new series is tough, especially when the current one is a New York Times Bestseller even when you barely move the story.
I read these books when I was a teenager, and they were pretty thoroughly terrible after the first few. That's time I'll never get back, so I'm a little bitter.
