George R. R. Martin has always been a busy man, and his schedule tightened a lot after the release of the Game of Thrones TV show, so much so that the series continued further than what he had written. Though he regrets it, he has still not completed the sixth book in the series The Winds of Winter, despite the growing resentment amongst the fans who have been waiting for the novel for nearly a decade. He once again confirmed that he is still working on the highly awaited book.

Martin wrote in his blog Not A Blog:

Yes, of course, I am still working on THE WINDS OF WINTER. I have stated that a hundred times in a hundred venues, having to restate it endlessly is just wearisome. I made a lot of progress on WINDS in 2020, and less in 2021… but “less” is not “none.”

The world of Westeros, the world of A SONG OF ICE & FIRE, is my number one priority, and will remain so until the story is told. But Westeros has become bigger than THE WINDS OF WINTER, or even A SONG OF ICE & FIRE. In addition to WINDS, I also need to deliver the second volume of Archmaester Gyldayn’s history, FIRE & BLOOD. (Thinking of calling that one BLOOD & FIRE, rather than just F&B, Vol 2). Got a couple hundred pages of that one written, but there’s still a long way to go.

I need to write more of the Dunk & Egg novellas, tell the rest of their stories, especially since there’s a television series about them in development. There’s a lavish coffee table book coming later this year, an illustrated, condensed version of FIRE & BLOOD done with Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson (my partners on THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE), and my Fevre River art director, Raya Golden. And another book after that, a Who’s Who in Westeros. And that’s just the books.”

I was hoping he would announce who he has picked to finish the series after he dies, since there is no way he is going to finish it himself. I know you find us “wearisome”, but waiting 10 effing years for you to write ONE BOOK is effing ridiculous. I like Dunk and Egg, but have not read any of your other distraction writings. How about you you put everything else on hold and finish WINDS OF WINTER, finally, and then you can eff off for another 5 years until we start complaining about the next sequel.

Never.

He clearly can’t finish the monster narrative he has started and nurtured. The other stuff is froth.
