Another chapter done.

And another character. This wraps up Yogi for the book. The Meereenese knot is hanging by a thread. One more good slash and it may finally part.

That's eight characters completed. Not counting the prologue or epilogue.

Course, there's still more to due. Got to get back to shoveling Snow soon, and there's still Fred hanging on, but first I need to hack at that blasted knot some more.

(Some year all this will make sense to you. Assuming anyone still cares).

I care! I love hearing about the progress of your writing, and this mysteriously bugger of a Meereenese knot. Your blog is the first thing I check each morning after my email :)

Well, this may be a bit forward, but was wondering if you had any local events going on in New Mexico in September? I'll be in town, and would love to buy you a meal or drink at any place of your choice....

Whatever. I care most about JETS football and the Dance.

Do you do fantasy football? We should do a Not a Blog league!

I'm feeling this is the home stretch of the home stretch.

I love the minutiae. I've collected all the notes, so that after I read the novel, I'll be able to understand the writing process for ADWD better. (For instance, way back when, you had completed 5 Jon Snow chapters, but realized they were missing something, so you added that something. What could that something be?) Like with AFFC, there were different versions of Cersei's 2nd chapter, and some elements of that chapter were edited out and put into later chapters. I love understanding how and why the story develops the way it does.

I wonder if there is a method to the madness of the 'nicknames'?

After you finish Dancing, I daresay that someone, somewhere, is going to compile every obscure, vague, painfully ambiguous statement you've ever made about the writing process of this book, and we're going to need you to go through them point by point and explain what the hell you were talking about.

Oh yes. We will care. We will.

Foghorn Leghorn = Rooster with a canine nemesis... who happens to be a Hound... hmm.

Snagglepuss = Mountain lion in league with Yogi Bear (another "hmm").

Is he/she a Mormont? Boo-boo is the young bear so maybe Yogi is a reference to the Old Bear? Or has Samwell Tarly been craving his pastries and resorted to swiping pickernick baskets? ;)

Another summer. 3th summer to be precise. 3th summer of re-reading your books, starting with A Game of Thrones and finishing with A Feast For Crows. Anything smelly in the last sentence? No? YES! The word finishing!
I'm an optimist, and every summer, including this, I tell myself: go ahead, read them again, because this year is the year. This is the year Dance will be released, and then you will have to wait just a little longer for translation. And when that happens you don't want to be asking yourself what is Sam's mission precisely, or who is traveling with Bran..
All of that because I love every little detail you put in your books and more importantly because I want to remember all of them when I finally start reading Dance.
If I spend another summer re-reading, I swear I'll now Game be heart

I've seen a couple of people suggest Valyrian steel as a solution to your Meereenese knot. I've got a better one (or, rather, Dany has)...
