The Beast

Here's another taste of Season 3, courtesy of HBO.

Enjoy.



Me, I am off tomorrow for the Hollywood premiere on Monday night. Should be cool.

Maybe it will help me forget all the stress I have been under of late... too many damn deadlines, all of them urgent... sigh... someday I will have time to stop and smell the roses, kick the severed heads... but not now...

Starting tomorrow it is LA LA LA SF TX TX TX TX and then home... where all the work and all the deadlines will be waiting for me, along with a pile of mail three feet high and maybe a thousand new emails...

I second that. I commented after only watching the video, not GRRM's message below it. :( Brilliant writer or not, too much on the go will wear anyone down and out. Take care, GRRM! Your fans appreciate your hard work :)

Should rethink being a genius then. Comes with the territory... ;)

I, on the other hand, am not a genius and have 20 pages of literature analysis due on Friday. Instead, I've been re-watching these trailers ad infinitum. Luckily, I graduate in May and the first thing I'll do with my free time is reread all of ASOIAF. Currently on TUF VOYAGING now and I enjoy it quite a bit, but 20 pages due on Friday, so...

Good luck to you and I hope you meet your deadlines! (No, not so I can read your material faster, well, not solely... but so you'll be less stressed!)

Take a REAL VACATION
As much as every fan of your works, and especially the die hard ASOIAF fans (including myself) will hate me for this message. I have to say it George for the love of god take a vacation to the Bahamas or something nice and just RELAX for a few days. If anyone needs it its you. And who are we kidding here, your GRRM YOU set the deadlines.

George! Please remember that you are allowed to say "No!" Stop and enjoy life while you still have the years to enjoy them!

I guess this is probably all a thrill ride, but still, I hope you will slow down.

Yes, even if that means waiting on the next book. I will wait, I promise. <3

Living the high life George! And we love you for all the hard work you do.

Argh! I can't wait for this next season! I think they did a great job matching actors to your characters. Book 3 is my favourite so far. Very excited!!!

Trailer only serves to whet the appetite further.

Sad to hear of the stress levels though, George. What with this post and your 'power out' entry, sounds like you've a ton on your plate.

Are the deadlines self-imposed or those of your masters?

oh, beautiful:)
but, ser, take a short rest. one year waiting more or less can be accepted so long as you can work in a relaxed mood...

Take your time. Hurry up. Choice is yours. Don't be late. :)

Chin Up
"d-e-a-d-l-i-n-e"

Not a nice word.

Still, chin up. IMO a good writer (a sparky, creative) writer is a rested, happy, relaxed writer. Which means you have a solemn duty to stay happy, relaxed, thankful, healthy …

I would advise focussing as much as possible on the one project that most of your readers are most bothered about, but, sorry, I know it just isn't that simple.

Keep up the good work and THANK YOU – the effort is appreciated!

Free Meals?
I hope you go to some swanky restaurants and discuss Fevre Dream with agents and the anonymous director.

Amazing
If this show gets any better, all the others are just going to give up :D

Never thought I could love something more than Star Wars, but GOT is a definite contender for the crown

Summer Isles
I would suggest that when you can, take a week to go to the Summer Isles, Belize would be my choice, and kick your feet up! They have this fantastic rum called 1 Barrel (best drank out of a coconut) that will help you relax, I promise. They even speak english down there. Also, thank you for creating all of these wonderful worlds for people to escape to. I know that when I'm stressed out, I pick up one of your novels and escape the real world, so thank you for helping with my stress. Keep up the hard work and thank you!
