We are only one day back from the east coast, having even finished unpacking yet, and yet Spokane and worldcon are only a week away.
Well, great - one week to continue work on The Winds of Winter. A whole week! Yay and chirp chirp.
Oh. That's not good for your motivation, though. Perhaps a few days of rest first. Let's try to keep four days for Winds, at least. Surely some progress would be desirable.
Hey, that's good! Maybe it revitalized the old batteries, let's say five days of writing, then. Five solid days could get an author a lot of pages under the belt.
Very interesting! Congratulations. Also, I read that as "Joffrey". It's funny 'cause it's a character from your story but which your fans seem to think more about than you.
A gentler soul than me would take this as a hint that Great Stuff is forthcoming. I on the other hand only see Martin's obsession with food.
There you go.
I just love the irony of Martin showing off his love for baseball and not understanding how his fans can be so infatuated with his story (and want to see it to its conclusion). Also, more time no Winds.
If only there wasn't so much work awaiting me when I came home...
Sorry, but BOO fucking HOO. What's wrong with this man? He's earning, what, 15 000 000$ a year and he has to complain about it on his blog. Man, I have never experienced a less grateful, less arrogant author than Martin. It's such a shame he has to be the one behind A Game of Thrones et al. I wish Erikson could have Martin's success instead. POOR Georgyboy aww has work to do. What a fucking slap to the face of his readership who patiently monitor his blog for any - any - breadcrumb of a newsbit on The Winds of Winter. And that so many fans just take it up the tailpipe - it's beyond my comprehension. It has nothing to with entitlement or any of the other tired excuses. It has everything to do with the author's lack of communication and crude manners online. Sigh. This literally makes me un-want to read anything from his hand / WordStar.
