Dance, Dance, Dance

Finished a Jon Snow chapter, and have just passed the 1100 page (manuscript pages, the page count in the final printed book will be different) mark on A DANCE WITH DRAGONS. That's counting only finished chapters in something close to final form. I have considerably more in partials, fragments, and roughs.



Even with just the finished portions, DANCE is now longer than A FEAST FOR CROWS and A GAME OF THRONES, and I'm closing in on A CLASH OF KINGS. I do hope I can wrap things up before I approach the 1521 page length of A STORM OF SWORDS.

Making a new run at the Meereenese knot, but maybe not tomorrow. I think I'll hang around at the Wall a bit longer, and maybe visit Winterfell.

Excellent news! Thanks for the update, sounds like you're maybe around the 3/4 mark for the book, and in the meantime I'll have the new D&E to read... Perfect! =)

ASOIAF series
Mr. Martin,

I realize this is a touchy subject, but maybe I can just vent a little.
Being aware that you have no obligation to your readers (I agree btw).
My concern is for the rest of the series. Can we expect the next book in 2014-15 and the last in 2020-21 ?
I'm exagerrating of course (I hope!!), but you see my point.

Thanks for letting me get my 2 cents in.

Hoping for an answer,

Warren

Yay!
That's awesome!

I'm curious, are those ms pages double-spaced or single-spaced?

Happy crafting!

no hurry.
I am just hlafway the STORM as I only discovered this serie a few weeks ago.
My only concern is
will the release of the DANCE be a paperback or a hardcover?
the Song is quite a popular serie and publishers then tend to wanna make extra bucks by releasing a hardcover first before a paperback a year or so later.

And it looks so slobby on the shelf: sudden change in size of a serie.

Dear Mr Martin, the more you write, the more I'll read, I just hope we both live long enough to see the end. Actually, I would have to live a little longer than you, but I'm quite a bit younger, so I stand a chance. Live long and prosper.

YAY for the Wall and Winterfell!

how wonderful! Hope you are enjoying writing it as much as we will all enjoy reading it! :)

I'm re-reading the entire series right now...just finished GoT and I'm amazed at all the subtle foreshadowing I didn't pick up on the first few times.
