There is much to debate and criticise about this matter, but this particular line of debate is imbecilic.
Someone on his blog recently asked if GRRM was going to be blogging about NFL football soon, as the season is about to begin, and he replied that no, there will probably be very few (if any) football posts this season because of how busy he is. He did say, however, that he will be Tivo'ing all the games to watch later. (I wish he would settle for highlights!)
Be glad his sport is football (16 games), and not baseball (162 games). If he ever takes a liking to the Mets, then get worried about ADWD.
Always look on the bright side of life.
Had dinner with GRRM and some other fans last night and I have to say that anyone who ever says anything bad about the guy in my vicinity will be getting a punch in the face. The man is amazingly accessible and good to his fans, a true gentleman.
The book'll be done when it's done.
Going to ADWD reading tomorrow as well as a signing and then of course the BWB party where we'll be trying our damnedest to get GRRM drunk as a punk skunk doing crunk.
Sweet, I get to piss off a GRRM junkie and get them arrested for assualt! So where do you live exactly?Had dinner with GRRM and some other fans last night and I have to say that anyone who ever says anything bad about the guy in my vicinity will be getting a punch in the face.
No problem with GRRM being a huge football fan. It's his life...gotta love some things. I love football myself and it occupies lots of time during the fall, but you have time for other things as well.
Foootball is not the reason we don't have ADWD yet.
This whole football debate is approaching Sarah Palin-like levels of stupidity.
You better not be insulting Mama Grizzly.
If Dance isn't announced as finished in time for it to hit bookstores in a time period in order for it to capitalize on the HBO series run, then I think GRRM's publishers will be ready to murder him. Also, in this case, I think all bets are off on predicting not when, but if it will ever be finished, but then maybe I'm just too pessimistic.
A report from the World Con:
http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php...2#entry2224352He read the prologue and said that in addition to that he had about 1300 pages (he actually had the Tyrion chapter there too - so shattered when he didnt have time to read it!!).
Referred to the length of time he's taken to get Dance of Dragons out a few times and said that he believes he's almost done, but that hes not giving any estimates.
