Taking another whack at the Meereenese knot today. I'm going to try breaking two largish chapters into four smallish ones, changing the order of events somewhat, and weaving them all together. Maybe that will work a little better.

Can it really be September?? Ack. I can feel the heat of those flames...

You can do it George! We believe in you! Its your knot, you made it, now get on that DOS based system and own those chapters, make them your ho's and gettem back on the street corner.

Psh. Alexander the Great? He only cut ONE knot in two. Not only has Mr. Martin read his history (Starting at the start!) but he improves upon it. Nice.

Re: Fevre Dream
I was just thinking of my friend's words when he gave me the first edition "A Game of Thrones":

"It's been 10 years since his last book, I think this one will have been worth waiting for."

Not that I'm encouraging any more waiting for its own sake, but I know it will be worth it when completed. Sometimes, in the little writing that I have done, I've found that solving problems brought out the best stories, tales I never would have come up with without an "insolvable" problem, or Myrrish knot.

Huh, that's strange, I've had that image up on the calendar above my writing desk since the end of June...

What? You're not supposed to take apart the calendar and put your favorite image up for three months at a time?

Hope there will be another amazing calendar for next year!

Thank You
Thank you for the update. Persoanlly, I'll take any bit of information you wish to pass along. It doesn't always have to be about a release date.

What a beautiful pic.
...if you can call that sort of thing beautiful. That guy is really amazing. (a sword like that could cut through a Meereenese knot fairly quickly...)

At Comic-Con George's editor indicated she thought the book was going to come in at about 1,200 manuscript pages, or a little bit shorter than A CLASH OF KINGS, but longer than A GAME OF THRONES.

Of course, what the final page count is I imagine depends on how much firepower it takes to break through the knot ;-)

Good luck, George!! :)

Badass! I love the Hound.

I think its a favorable sign that you are tackling the Meereenese Knot in the same way that Alexander attacked his Gordian Knot...chopping it into smaller pieces instead of trying to unravel it.

If it worked for Alexander it will work for you! Go George!

My patriots: 38
Your giants: 27.

wrong hand?
i love the artwork. But isn't the Hound right-handed? now i will have to scour 5000-ish pages, or this will gnaw at me like a dog at a bone. guffaw!
