Yadda Yadda Y'All

For those of you who cannot get enough of me pontificating, here's a new interview from LoneStarCon, and the AUSTIN CHRONICLE:

Saw this last week
But read it again anyway.

I've always wondered about your process of writing the earlier premonitions within "Game of Thrones" (like Bran's coma visions). As in whether you created them with future books in mind (or book) or if they were simply there and then became seamless parts of the story as it developed in your mind. This article leads me to the latter in that regard. Impressive.

Your point about the third-person perspective is also helpful as I move forward with my own story. I'd actually been wrestling with a perspective problem and then read your words.

Planning your voyage.
Hey Grrm, i got a question in one of your interviews you said that you are more of a gardener kind of writer, that you put ideas into the story and wait to see what comes out of it. I have a question about that. Have you ever planned the faith of a character, and then in the middle of the story, when you were trying to get him were you wanted him to go, you realized he is in a hopeless situation and you thought "Oh crap, now i have to kill this guy" ??
Just something i came up with reading your Austinchronicle interview. I would also be glad to know if I have met such a character in the course of reading your books. Thanks anyway.

Are you not scared that you have become a different person?
Now you are famous and rich. This changes the viewpoint of the most settled character. Success is a sweet but deadly poison for the unrelenting writer.

read the interview..
I just wanted to say that I liked the last part.

"In some ways, Westeros is Disneyland compared to some of the things that really went on during the Crusades or the Hundred Years War. We shouldn't delude ourselves in that. History is written in blood."

I sometimes wonder, what have you left out for some reason.

Season 4
George, is it true that you are going to participate of an episode in the season 4 of Game of Thrones?

Re: Season 4
Well, I had hoped to, if I found the time... but right now that does not look promising.

Red wedding
I completely agree about the connection/reaction desired when the reader gets to those parts. That said; I believe I threw the book across the room when I read the red wedding! I finished it, of course, after much profanity and cursing your name. ;)
