    "various book deadlines"

    I hope it is true!

    First Bran chapter in TWOW

    Pray for a big fat book that can not be published in one tome. I'll be OK with one Bran chapter of it is a huge book.

    Just found this on reddit:

    "various book deadlines"

    George has been MIA on Not A Blog. Last post was on December 19. Seems the deadline is for Winds (fingers crossed).

    Mistakes in the Books

    But early chapters in the book are typically set in some way or another. He can edit those chapters.

    Mistakes in the Books

    TWOW is the most anticipated book for the publisher. I don't see a reason why they don't want to work with George on editing it as it is written rather than after it is delivered, especially that the publisher want to release the book as soon as humanly possible.

    Mistakes in the Books

    George can send all of the finished chapters to his editors now, and continue writing the reminder of the book. Make the writing process a dynamic one; his editors read and correct the book as it is written. When the last chapter is delivered, they can do final edits which can be done effectively in 3 months. Sitting on finished chapters-riddled with errors- for years is unfathomable.

    Mistakes in the Books

    He can start editing whatever he has now rather than after the entire book is delivered. The current sample chapter, Arianne II, has a glaring error: "Mistfall" instead of "Mistwood". George admits that he's a slow writer, why not complement the slow writing with error free writing? F&B was a better read because of fewer glaring errors. ADWD on the other hand was not.

    That's why I wrote "theoretically".

    Mistakes in the Books

    George has been writing WINDS for 8 years now. Dose he sends whatever he finishes to his editors to catch and correct? Quick turnaround is not an excuse for ADWD or TWOW whenever it comes. I'll grant him the last two or three chapters as they, theoretically, had less time to be edited. But, for the rest of the book it is not excusable to have glaring errors. His editors are getting a salary to catch such errors, George's refusal to use them through out the writing process is baffling. Waiting 8 years for a book is bad, waiting 8 years getting a book riddled with errors is horrendous.

    Mistakes in the Books

    In the first printing of ADWD there were a lot of mistakes. Granted subsequent prints corrected these mistakes. However, those mistakes removed me from the world immersion experience. Do we know if George is working with his editors earlier to catch and correct any errors in TWOW? Or is he sticking with a month or so before the book is printed? I hope he works with his editors far in advance to catch any errors.

    First Bran chapter in TWOW

    Bran will set the stage for the latter half of the story. Ending the first half with Bran does exactly that.

    First Bran chapter in TWOW

    I hope it is longer than ASOS and ADWD, but yeah split the book into two volumes like ASOS and ADWD. By having a Bran as the last chapter of the first Vol, George can give us a retrospect on the events of that Vol plus some other juicy secrets.

    First Bran chapter in TWOW

    If TWOW is released in two volumes (fingers crossed), I expect Bran to be the last chapter of the first volume.

    First Bran chapter in TWOW

    We know that George plans to open TWOW with the cut of chapters (the battles) from ADWD. We also know that there was a Bran chapter cut from ADWD (per the Texas A&M collection). So where do we think Bran's first chapter will fall? Bran, now, has a power that could spoil the story-I'm sure George is struggling to set rules for Bran's abilities- and therefor we'll see little of him through out the book. I guess Bran's first chapter will be closer to the half point of the book than the beginning. I expect that Bran will be the last character to have a first chapter in TWOW (not counting Jon). Therefore, I expect to see the eleven sample chapters, ten or more complement chapters (including ones from other characters in the same location) to complete the four battles, Dany, Melisandre, Sam, Brienne, Jamie, Cerise, Davos, and Areo before we get the first Bran chapter. What do y'all think?
