    George R.R. Martin Confirms ‘Winds Of Winter’ Novel Won’t Be Ready Before ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 6 Begins

    Game Of Thrones author George RR Martin has missed the deadline for the sixth novel in the fantasy series that would have allowed The Winds Of Winter to be published before the next season of the HBO TV series begins, the author confirmed on his blog. “The Winds Of Winter is not finished.” “Believe me, it gave me no pleasure to type those words. You’re disappointed, and you’re not alone."

    This is what happens when you put to much pressure on an author. The poor man now feels that his material isn't good enough so he starts to second guess himself and it just snow balls from there.

    It's not like working on an assembly line. Maybe he doesn't want to put his name on crap.

    Right??
    If the story isn't there, why should he rush it.
    (And I know nothing about the story. Never seen an ep or read a book)

    I think he's lost his passion for this series.

    The guy is 67 (looks 80) he should just have someone else write the books using his outline.

    Who could blame him? He's now expected to rush his art out the door to please his corporate overlords at HBO.

    I don't disagree. Also, having the media constantly asking, " what the fuck is wrong with GRR?" Can't help.

    Love GRM but he is a lazy fuck.

    Those books should have been out long ago.
