George RR Martin reports fantastic progress in the newest update on Winds of Winter, which will be released in 2021.
As George RR Martin shares his amazing work with the new Game of Thrones novel, THE WINDS OF WINTER, the release date for THE WINDS OF WINTER is looking good for 2021.
After ten years, George RR Martin is nearing the end of the penultimate book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. According to the author, The Winds of Winter, the next Game of Thrones novel, will be a massive work. “What was wonderful about 2020?” the 72-year-old said on his blog. Aside from the election, what else is going on? Well, there was job for me.”
“I wrote hundreds and hundreds of pages of THE WINDS OF WINTER in 2020,” Martin continued. It’s been the best year I’ve had on WOW since I started.
“Why? I’m not sure. Maybe it’s the seclusion. Or maybe I’m just having a good day. I do go on a roll now and then.”
Despite the progress, the Game of Thrones creator acknowledged that he still has a long way to go, but is optimistic that the highly awaited novel will be completed this year.
“However, I need to keep rolling,” he wrote. To bring the work to a satisfactory conclusion, I still have hundreds of pages to write. That, I hope, is what 2021 is for.”
Martin, on the other hand, will not set a deadline because he has had negative consequences in the past when he has missed them.
“I will make no predictions as to when I will finish,” the 72-year-old wrote. Assholes on the internet interpret this as a ‘promise,’ and then gleefully await my crucifixion if I miss the deadline. All I can say is that I am optimistic.
“However, I have a billion other things to accomplish. My dish is bursting at the seams.
“Every time I finish one task, three more are thrown at me.”
“Monkeys on my back, aye, aye, I’ve sung that song before,” Martin continued. There are so many monkeys. And then there’s Kong.
“I’ll go over all of that in a separate blog post. In the meantime, guys and gals, please stay safe and well. I’ll make an effort to do the same.”
Of course, Martin’s statement that he hopes to finish The Winds of Winter in 2021 does not imply that it will be released until 2022.
But, who knows, maybe the author will surprise his followers despite his busy schedule.
