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.

Keep on Trucking!
Yes, by all means stay up at the Wall!
Enough with the Dornish soap opera. What's up with Jon and The Others?!
Glad to here there really is progress.
It's probably a good lesson to us all that some kinds of gratification really do take years... and are well worth it.
Just please be sure to watch your cholesterol and always fasten your seat belt. ;-)

Meanwhile WHAT IS THE MEREENEESE KNOT??!!
Some day we must find out.
Surely it's tied up around some major part of the story.
Perhaps after "Dance" is finished and published ...or after the whole series is finished and published... it would be a great treat to find out what this mysterious and confounding puzzle actually was.
How about it?

Good luck!

Congrats on getting so much accomplished.
As to the page count - bah - how many ever books or pages it takes, we'll be here reading them! :)

Winterfell?!
Yay! \o/

I eagerly await the time when I, too, may revisit Winterfell without resorting to time traveling into the previous books.

The more pages the merrier. I'm sure I will not want it to ever end.

You've also mentioned moving some Sansa chapters to the next book, so I guess you have a bit of The Winds of Winter written as well.

Good news George.

Lets hope you finish the book speedily and before the year is over.

Good luck with the knot.
It's got to be a pesky bugger. I recommend listening to some "eye of the tiger" by survivor before you sit down and write.

BTW I love to read these updates. Progress is progress.

Excellent. I just finished rereading A Storm of Swords, now I need to find my copies of the other books in the series.
