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.

This may sound odd but, I have just started listening to the series about a month ago (books on tape). I have NEVER been a big reader but to my surprise I'm really enjoying them :) For the most part (seriously) I generally think "reading for fun" was an oxymoron, however your series have changed my mind for the better. Thanks for the update and I look forward to continuing with these adventures :)

Hopeful :)
I hope you finish it soon, not to rush the creative process, but I love your books and can't wait to read the next! I hope life goes the road you need it, or you can enjoy getting lost :D (but I prefered it went the right way, so the book gets done faster)

Hurray! (and many thanks)
First of all: Yay!!! \o/

Now:
It's a wonderful thing you do, updating us fans on your progress.
But as much as I (and millions of others) yearn to read the rest of the series, I just wanted to note that your well being comes first, and that you should take your time and not strain yourself too much.
Bottom line is - you don't owe us anything, as Neil Gaiman stated so truly in his blog once...

Just thought I should give voice to this usually unheard fact.

Cheers and take care,

A fan

Good God man, I almost wish you hadn't posted this because I'm starting to hope again.
