Still Writing

writing
There must be something about the words "dance" and "dragons."

We all know how long the last novel took. And now I am writing the "sidebar" (hoo hah) about the first Dance of the Dragons, the fratricidal civil war between King Aegon II and his half-sister Rhaenyra, for THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE, and it's turned into a monster too.

As of today, I have a hundred and three bloody manuscript pages (some VERY bloody) and still no end at hand. I had hoped to finish this one today, but... no, not even close. Lots more to write.

I think there's some good stuff here, and judging by the reception my reading got at Chicon, most of you seem to like the fake history too. But DAMN, there a lot of it.

Nothing to do but keep doing.

Dance, you dragons, dance, dance...

Wonderful!
Even though it seems to be a pain, I am sure it will be great when you are finished. If I didn't rely on my fingers so much day to day, I would be chewing them to the bone right now while waiting on your next Song of Ice and Fire book to come out lol.

I need to find any thing else you have written in regards to this series to keep me entertained enough during my wait. Getting more information about the world and characters would be awesome and would also be a great addition to the five books I have of yours right now (the Ice and Fire ones so far). Is there a list some where?

Wow, I did not mean to write this much.. sorry! Good luck and try not to tire yourself too much!
