George R.R. Martin says writing Winds of Winter keeps him out of trouble



george r.r. martin winds of winter

Fans of George R. R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire have been anticipating his next novel, The Winds of Winter, for a long time. The last book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series was released in 2011, more than a decade ago. Although he occasionally updates his admirers, many are irritated because he is taking too long to complete. Martin has stated that the Game of Thrones novel remains his first focus.

George R. R. Martin is still writing Winds of Winter

Martin recently wrote on his blog, Not A Blog:

“Yes, yes, of course, I’ve been working on WINDS OF WINTER. Almost every day. Writing, rewriting, editing, writing some more. Making steady progress. Not as fast as I would like.. .certainly not as fast as YOU would like… but progress nonetheless.

It keeps me out of trouble.”


WGA strike will not affect Winds of Winter

Martin wrote in an earlier post, “Some of you, I fear, may be having anxiety attacks just now, on the mistaken assumption that this strike affects WINDS OF WINTER. You can relax. The WGA is a union of film and television writers. It has nothing to do with novels, short stories, or any other form of prose fiction, nor comic books and graphic novels, nor stage plays, nor the editing of collections and anthologies I have on-going projects in all those areas, and that work continues unabated. And WINDS continues to be priority number one.”
