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.

Please, feel free to make it as long as it needs to be. There is no rush to finish when curling up with one of your novels. The longer, the better. (:

Good luck on getting this monster done and thank you again for the suffering you have done to get it absolutely perfect for us readers. It has been a long and sometimes agonizing wait, but I am sure that all of that will melt away the second we crack the cover and dive into what I'm sure will be another masterpiece.

That just gets me giddy. What the hell is happening at Winterfell?!?! Don't worry- that's a rhetorical question for myself....

I love updates. They really do help pass the time. I'm like a fiend with this series. Write on, man!
Can't wait for the announcement!

Thank you
Thank you so much Ser Martin. Your books are truly inspirational and profound. You've spoiled me though with ASOIAF, it's too good :D!

Re: Thank you
If titles in Westeros work like here, it would be Ser George, never Ser Martin. Just sayin'.

Sweet
Glad to hear that things are going well. Hopefully things will continue that way for you. The thought of reading more of this story has me at a loss for words now, so I will just say that I really love your work.
