There is no other book that makes a noise as loud as "The Winds of Winter" does. The sixth installment of the book series, "A Song of Ice and Fire," is one of the anticipated books at the time. In fact, fans have been waiting for it for over four years, but unfortunately, "TWOW" remains in the dark.
George RR Martin is struggling to finish "The Winds of Winter," perhaps due to his busy schedule and prior commitments. However, the 67-year-old author made it known that he is determined to finish "TWOW" as soon as he could. Parent Herald recently reported that Martin would not be entertaining future invitations and commitments to get "The Winds of Winter" done.
Meanwhile, Master Herald reported that George RR Martin is suffering from writer's block, which causes the delay of "The Winds of Winter." This is the condition where the writer is unable to think what to write or how to proceed with his work. Could this be true?
Earlier this year, George RR Martin announced that "The Winds of Winter" is not done yet. He stressed that he is disappointed and he is aware that many others do, including his editors, publishers, agents and HBO. His next statements seem to suggest the he is indeed going through a creative slow down.
The "The Winds of Winter" author explained that he has written several chapters and pages but more are left unwritten. Also, there are days when he needs to rewrite his works. Sometimes he just polishes it, but sometimes he does major restructures.
"Unfortunately, the writing did not go as fast or as well as I would have liked. You can blame my travels or my blog posts or the distractions of other projects and the Cocteau and whatever, but maybe all that had an impact... you can blame my age, and maybe that had an impact too," George RR Martin wrote on his blog. "But if truth be told, sometimes the writing goes well and sometimes it doesn't, and that was true for me even when I was in my 20s."
Do you think that George RR Martin is suffering from writer's block? Will the production of "The Winds of Winter" speed up now that he will not be doing other projects until he finishes the book? Share your thoughts below.
