The Winds of Winter, George R. R. Martin‘s follow-up novel in the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series, has been highly anticipated by readers. The most recent book in the Game of Thrones series was published in 2011, which is now more than 12 years ago.

Though Martin is a prolific and coveted writer, he has never been the one known for good writing speed. In a recent interview withย Bangcast, Martin admitted his hopeless situation, where he can’t seem to be able to finish the much-anticipated book. He said, “The main thing I’m actually writing, of course, is the same thing… I wish I could write as fast as [The Last Kingdom author Bernard Cornwell] but I’m 12 years late on this damn novel and I’m struggling with it.”

How many pages of Wind of Winter has George R. R. Martin written so far?

The Winds of Winter has been described by Martin as a really long novel, with a great number of chapters, more than anything he has ever written before. He further revealed in the podcast:

“I have like 1,100 pages written but I still have hundreds more pages to go. It’s a big mother of a book for whatever reason. Maybe I should’ve started writing smaller books when I began this but it’s tough. That’s the main thing that dominates most of my working life.”
