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...

I still haven't finished A Dance with Dragons, although I bought it day one (somehow busy, and also got engrossed in Agatha Christie, love the old lady). I'm picking it up now again, but I'm in no hurry XD

Seeing that there is something like this "fake history" as you put it is something else to look forward to! I always loved Dunk and Egg stories, so I'm quite excited to see how this war goes :)
