The Meereenese Knot...

Spain
... may be fraying, just a little.

But don't quote me on that.

Knot jokes
You see it is a bit of string that has been in a fight and become tangled and frayed.
So it is now a FRAYED KNOT.

Give me strength!

Meereen
I don't think Denarys will have any choice but to kill all the Ghiscari and their families. They hate Targaryen's and Valyrians are their ancient enemies. They will continue to try to assassinate her. The unsullied should be unleashed on them. Kill em all let the Stranger find them!

Oh, check out some of my Ice and Fire art here:

Geez Mr. Martin...maybe you need Maniac Magee to come in on this one? You can kick back, relax, and pizza (because you know Maniac won't touch it) while watching him tap at it.

Only fraying?
Maybe you should take a whack at it with Valyrian steel or at the very least with dragon glass. Any idea on how many more pages you want to write before you are done?

Dance
I have a life. There are other books I want to read. I don't have enough time to read as it is, so maybe the pain of waiting for the end just doesn't get to me as much as others.

I'll wait for Dance for as long as it takes to be quality. I don't care how long, I really don't. As long as you finish it before you die, George... or if you never want to finish it, that's fine too. It's all up to you.

Thanks for sharing what you do. I stopped visiting this site because of all the negative feedback you get, it just got me down. So I've decided just to add my own positive feedback, which you can add to your list of posts or not, as you feel appropriate.

I'll wait until it's done. And then I'll wait for the end. I'm happy just to have a fantastic tale to wait for; I know that if you take the time you need, it will be all worth it in the end.

Thanks again for the great literature, and showing the world that fantasy can be literature of the modern age. at a very high level (in my humble opinion).

Sincerely,
Evan M. Shaw, M.D.

Knot shmot
You want a knot? Try getting a comb through my 10 yr old daughter's hair... The trick is to first get a good grip around the entire lock to protect the scalp from any painful tugs, and always from the bottom up, gradually coax the loosest bits of the knot in small sections, gently, never forcing - and in no time, the knot relents...
Maybe give that a try?

Re: Knot shmot
Mr Martin seems to have much sharper solutions for head based problems.

The pains of plotting
Being interested in the process of writing and something of an aspiring writer, as I imagine a lot of us readers are, when the dust settles and the book is out I'd be really interested in just how this knot occured, the ways you tried to unravel it and what finally did the trick. Or is that all secret author tech? In any case, good luck!

As frustrating as it is each time you mention the knot and I think to myself "can't he just get over it and deal with it being imperfect so we can eventually have the book?!", I get really tingly all over thinking about the quality of the work to come. It's the very attitude that has you toiling over this knot that has resulted in such a fantastic series to-date with its incredibly intricate web of criss-crossing strings that are all exactly where they should be, with no messy tangles.

Keep at it!

Anyone realize that Walmart is under the impression they'll have the book on September 28th of this year?

A piece of rope walked into a bar...
the bartender says, "Aren't you that piece of rope I threw out of here earlier?"

The rope replies, "Nope, I'm a frayed knot!" BA-Doom-Ching!

Seriously: I think we all agree that a Deus Ex Machina would be *The Worst Thing Ever* to happen in the series, so... keep pulling on that knot. Needle-nose pliers usually help... the Alexandrian approach would, to me, equate to nothing more than Deus Ex.

Given the few times I've dipped my toe into the pool of fiction writing, I myself am lucky enough to ever have a plot that even equates to a simple square. :D
