Uh oh

Someone said :
THE WINDS OF WINTER is not finished.

Believe me, it gave me no pleasure to type those words. You're disappointed, and you're not alone. My editors and publishers are disappointed, HBO is disappointed, my agents and foreign publishers and translators are disappointed... but no one could possibly be more disappointed than me. For months now I have wanted nothing so much as to be able to say, "I have completed and delivered THE WINDS OF WINTER" on or before the last day of 2015.

But the book's not done.

Nor is it likely to be finished tomorrow, or next week. Yes, there's a lot written. Hundreds of pages. Dozens of chapters. (Those 'no pages done' reports were insane, the usual garbage internet journalism that I have learned to despise). But there's also a lot still left to write. I am months away still... and that's if the writing goes well. (Sometimes it does. Sometimes it doesn't.) Chapters still to write, of course... but also rewriting. I always do a lot of rewriting, sometimes just polishing, sometimes pretty major restructures.

But I won't make excuses. There are no excuses. No one else is to blame. Not my editors and publishers, not HBO, not David & Dan. It's on me. I tried, and I am still trying. I worked on the book a couple of days ago, revising a Theon chapter and adding some new material, and I will writing on it again tomorrow. But no, I can't tell you when it will be done, or when it will be published. Best guess, based on our previous conversations, is that Bantam (and presumably my British publisher as well) can have the hardcover out within three months of delivery, if their schedules permit. But when delivery will be, I can't say. I am not going to set another deadline for myself to trip over. The deadlines just stress me out.

I am going back to my stance from last March, before all this. It will be done when it's done. And it will be as good as I can possibly make it.

His work pace sure has slowed to a crawl. It's not certain if this series will ever be finished now.

My Dad has started watching GOT. What have I done?!?!?

It's "a bit near the knuckle" apparently. He likes Tyrion though. He's just seen the episode where Bronn saves him in the Eyrie.

Him : "Does the little dwarf guy stick around until the end?"

Me : "I'm not going to tell you that!"

Will he still be watching after Littlefinger educates Roz, when she is new to the Brothel..??

The first few episodes had raunchier scenes than that but there may be a cumulative effect alright.

You can't rush Genius.. Let him finish the Book in his own time & his own way.. Either write something better, faster, or, stop whining.

He's seen the dragons now and doesn't want to continue watching.

@ Oliver, the problem with GRRM is that he is never home these days (read his blog) and he only writes at home ...

I'm just praying he doesn't drop dead any time soon.. He's not exactly a young man any more (or the healthiest looking guy either)..

Summary / recap of the entire series. After the excellent introduction I skipped to the final 2 minutes as the last season was a bit of a blur.

Just watched the first half. Would continue watching but the dog is eyeballing me and guilt tripping me into her second walk of the day.
Will have to finish second half when I get back. Damn you dog with your melty eyes.

The ending was freaky. I can see where this is going.
