    The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    to be honest, it's quite depressing. I'm far from being a good writer myself - could never keep my deadlines. but: in May 2015 he thought, he could finish by Halloween. in August 2015, he thought, he could finish by the end of the year - in 4 months. he claims that he put much effort into the work on TWOW since - and I certainly believe him. HOW can he still be months away from finishing the book? how can he not be sure that the is done in 2018 - that's one and a half years. from 4-5 months 2 years ago. how can he be so bad at measureing his progress? I simply cannot unterstand it

    surely you all have already read this comment on his blog? http://grrm.livejournal.com/527454.html?thread=25877342#t25877342 he really seems to work hard, but a 1000 page book seems to take more time than he has.

    PS. since Euros is the God of the (dangerous) East Wind. do you think that GRRM named Euron as a reference to this?

    does anyone know whom Sherlock sends this text in the last sequence? ("You know where to find me. SH") The Woman? Molly? or his parents (they listen to him and Euron playing at the end)?

    I am not a writer myself, but I know that you cannot simply change your writing style. The way you write is not a deliberate choice. at least if you want to achieve the best outcome possible. @mormont is absolutely right there. but my point was: it is not for us to demant apologies etc from George. of course, I am also disappointed, frustrated and sometimes angry that the book is not yet in my shelf - I've wanted it for years. but it is not for me (and us) to demand that another shall work to make me happy. it is not for me to demand apologies when George has difficulties to bring this story to paper. because that is what I really want - and what we all are here for: we know that George can write extraordinary tales, rich in detail, with many persons we care for and whose arces and plots perfectly fit together. and we want the same also for Winds. but this takes time. and we have to give him this time.

    it's likely to be the first option. until now the only glimpses into Mel's past were in her thoughts, not through the POV of others.

    ASOS set up the Second Dance? I don't think so - that was ADWD, where "Aegon" first appeared as a living person. but does that mean that she is in Vaes Dothrak all the time? I think she takes the Dothraki with her when she conquers Volantis - and then sets sail with them to Westeros. the last scene of TWOW I expect Dany to land on Dragonstone, standing before the Painted Table and giving a speech to her commanders on the Second Conquest.

    I think he is. The Valyrian Freehold didn't yet exist at the time of the last invasion of the Others (some say around 8,000 years ago), but emerged a few thousand years later. And I assume that Valyrian steel wasn't forged before that. So I think that nobody could know until now what effect Valyrian steel has against the Others.

    If you take into account the geography of the Vale and assume that they take the main road out of it, then it is not at all so unlikely that people meet on this road.
