I noticed one small error, though, and I only point it out to be helpful, not to nitpick.
In several interviews and podcasts, Mr. Martin has related the story that the series was inspired by a scene in which children come across the body of a wolf in the snow, with a broken antler tine in its throat.
That's from The SF Site: A Conversation with George R. R. Martin, though I've certainly heard him tell the story that way in other interviews as well.

That's a bit closer to the writing date than the SF Site interview. I think it sounds like George saw both of these key images: Bran watching the execution, and the discovery of the pups, and was compelled to write the chapter that contained them both.

Doubtless you're correct, and either way, the chapter from which the series was conceived is more important as a whole than any one specific scene.

Not sure what you mean here. ASoS wasn't split, aside from the UK paperback and a few other foreign editions.

That is probably going to depend on your publisher in Croatia. The US and UK hardcovers will be single volume editions.
If it is the same publisher and they split ASoS, I would think it is likely they AdwD. It will be an equal sized or a marginally longer book.

I remember reading somewhere that GRRM had moved some chapters over from ADWD to TWoW, does anyone know how many pages/chapters that was, exactly?
Posted 28 April 2011 - 03:04 PM
At one point last year, GRRM said that there were 100 manuscript pages for TWOW from various chapters. But his editor recently said that they had done some trimming on ADWD to cut out ~50 manuscript pages or so, in order to bring ADWD in line with ASOS length-wise, and some of that may have ended up with TWOW as well.

Still, wasn't the original plan for A Dance of Dragons to involve Dany's invasion of Westeros and the chaos that would ensue from that? Or am I not remembering that correctly? If that is case, then he hasn't written all of what he originally planned for A Dance of Dragons. So he has...what, two and a half books left?

IIRC, Martin has said that the "Dance with Dragons" the title refers to is not necessarily Dany's invasion of Westeros.
