First off, don’t mention your worries that George may die before he finishes the series. It pisses him off. “I don’t see speculation about the possibility of my death as any sort of compliment,” he said. “My own hope is to live another thirty years and write thirty more books.” I see his point.
“I do post about Ice & Fire and Game of Thrones whenever there is actual news to report,” he wrote.
“Do you really want or need weekly WoW posts all saying, ‘Still working on it, not done yet?’
“You say, ‘Give us something,’ but it seems to me I have. A number of sample chapters have been posted on my website, and I’ve read more of them at cons. It’s never enough.”
“The only thing I can give that will satisfy is the finished book, and that’s what I’m trying to deliver.”
