“I have to confess, after half a year of pandemic, I am showing signs of cabin fever. If nothing else, the enforced isolation has helped me write. I am spending long hours every day on THE WINDS OF WINTER, and making steady progress,” George R.R. Martin, creator of the series, tweeted Wednesday morning.
Although the “Game of Thrones” series concluded over a year ago, fans are still reeling from a controversial finale. Fans even made a Change.org petition urging HBO to re-make the final season. (HBO is owned by WarnerMedia, CNN’s parent company.)
Martin, who prefers to make use of an out of date disk operating system (DOS) as a substitute of a fashionable pc, is at present isolating in “an actual cabin in the mountains” and hopes to complete his long-awaited fantasy novel “The Winds of Winter” by next year.
On his blog, Martin defined that his “enforced isolation” has helped him write, and that he is “making steady progress” with the story.
Publishers have been ready for “The Winds of Winter”, the penultimate book in the series before “A Dream of Spring,” since the publication of “A Dance With Dragons” in 2011.
Fans throughout the globe are eagerly watching Martin’s progress. In occasions as dark as these, we may all use a little more magic.
