George R.R. Martin updates fans on The Winds of Winter's progress
Author George R.R. Martin shared with fans a major update on The Winds of Winter, the next novel in the series that inspired Game of Thrones. Close writer revealed that hundreds of pages have already been written during the last year but he also revealed that there are many more to be written and that, therefore, the story he wants to tell does not have a definitive version yet.

This succulent news came directly from Martin's official blog (you can read the post at this link), in an intervention entitled Reflections on a bad year, in which the author retraced 2020, the pandemic, the elections and some personal losses. In the update, he asked himself what could be good about last year, the answer he came up with was his work. Martin wrote: “I wrote hundreds and hundreds of pages of The Winds of Winter in 2020 ″, also calling it his best year, in which he worked on the sixth volume of A Song of Ice and Fire.

George R.R. Martin admitted he still has a lot to do: “I have to keep working, though,” he noted. "I still have hundreds of pages to write to bring the novel to a satisfactory conclusion." The author then states that he wants to achieve the same result in 2021. However, Martin has made it clear that he will not predict when it will end. Given the great anticipation of the novel, fans will probably see this news as a promise written in blood, but we know that we must not give too much weight to Martin's statements, artists, in general, do not like pressure of this type.

The cycle of novels The Chronicles of Ice and Fire made its editorial debut in the now distant 1996 with the book The Game of the Throne (or A Game of Thrones) which was followed by four other novels , A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Ravens, A Dance with Dragons. As we all know, the very successful HBO Game of Thrones series that ended in 2019 was taken from this series of novels.

We recommend purchasing the official book that tells the story of Westeros at this link entitled The World of Ice and Fire.
