George R. R. Martin is working hard, writing The Winds of Winter and he has given us an update on his writing. Keep reading to find out how close Martin is to finishing the novel!
Just a month ago, Martin said he was working on the fifth novel in The Song of Ice and Fire series and was focused on a main plot point. He wrote on his blog “I think I’m close to finishing the Tyrion arc in Winds of Winter. I think this chapter and maybe one further chapter; and I won’t be done with the book, but I’ll be done with Tyrion’s role in this particular book. And then I’ll have to focus on another character, some of whom are also close, some of whom are not at all close. And then hopefully it all fits together.”
Now, we have gotten an on how he is coming along. “I hope to wrap up the story line for one of the viewpoint characters of WINDS OF WINTER this week. Maybe even two.”
That is great news for everyone who is eager for this novel to finally come out. The estimated date is November 2023 which is a little over a year. It has been 11 years since the last novel, A Dance with Dragons and there is still one more novel after that.
Martin is still working on the novel but it looks like he is on the tail end of the novel. It is great to get reassuring updates and hopeful the writing pace doesn’t decline so we can finally get to read the long-awaited novel.
