The epic fantasy novel series “A Song of Ice and Fire” is one of the most famous works of American author George RR Martin. The fifth and most recent volume in the series, A Dance with Dragons, was released in 2011. Since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting the sixth volume The Winds of Winter. Now the latest report shares a roughly identical update.
Fans are hopeful that the wait for the next novel was almost over since the author in his previous blog post updated that he wrote “hundreds of pages of The Winds of Winter” in 2020. He even described it as “the best year I have had [on the book] since I started it.
Now George RR Martin, in his blog, has shared a new update that any progress Martin has made has no way of being “very late.” In a new “Not A Blogging” post title, he revealed how his “Not A Blog” had become a blog and, with that, had become an obligation – and apparently now a delay. He wrote: “Somehow, however, over the decades the Not A blog has grown into a blog, and what I had wanted to be a casual pleasure and a way to keep in touch with. my readers became a blog (ironically, at the same time as everyone was abandoning their blogs for Facebook and Twitter), with a sense of obligation. And when a lot of things happen very quickly, I fall further and further behind. “
He added: “I am very late at the moment, and the prospect of trying to catch up seems more and more oppressive to me. My life has turned to one of the extremes in recent months.
While the author isn’t directly referring to The Winds of Winter, there are a number of projects that he could refer to. Since he has a lot of projects going on, including a new five-year contract with HBO to create new Game of Thrones successor shows as well as non-Game of Thrones series for HBO and HBO Max.
