    Twists will occur in future books that won't be seen in show. Link.

    The Ultimate Winds of Winter Resource

    Last night in a notablog comment, GRRM re-emphasizes that the books and show will parallel and be different, also talks about characters who were never featured in GoT that exist in his universe: No major or new development but interesting all the same.

    For those curious, I completed a large update of the post Here are the updates: Writing Progress updates since July 2016: GRRM has no announcement to make on The Winds of Winter by August 2016 GRRM won’t talk about his progress until the writing is done GRRM is “back to work” in September 2016 after spending most of August at conventions, meetings in LA and with house guests/visitors. The Winds of Winter is not being cancelled. – GRRM, notablog comment, “Signed Books at the JCC” 10/15/2016 The Manuscript for Winds hasn’t been lost. – GRRM, notablog comment, “Now On Sale, 10/21/2016 GRRM’s appearance schedule for 2017 will be very limited and will remain so until Winds is completed. – GRRM notablog, “South of the Border”, 11/28/2016 GRRM doesn’t want to do a tell-all update on The Winds of Winter, but he’s working on the book. – GRRM, notablog comment, “End of the Season” – 1/7/2017 GRRM states that TWOW is not done. He made progress in 2016 but not as much as he would have liked. He thinks that TWOW will be released in 2017. GRRM doesn’t think Winds will take four more years to complete. – GRRM, notablog comment, “Tor Launches Wild Cards Re-Read”, 2/25/2017 GRRM will announce completion and delivery of Winds months before the book publishes. – GRRM, notablog, “It’s Publication Day”, 2/28/2017 GRRM still working on Winds but seemingly struggling, saying “So much to do. And the days go by so quickly. I love my work, all my work, all my projects, all my children, but sometimes it seems as if the harder I work, the further I get behind.” – GRRM, notablog, “March Madness”, 3/18/2017 GRRM does not have writer’s block though. – GRRM, notablog comment, “March Madness”, 3/19/2017 GRRM won’t comment on rumors of Winds and Game of Thrones, Season 7 – GRRM, notablog comment, “More Cool Wild Cards Stuff”, 4/7/2017 New Confirmed Unreleased TWOW Chapters Cersei Lannister Asha Greyjoy Melisandre of Asshai Plot-Points Confirmed by GRRM At Balticon, GRRM mentioned that Arya would get her first period soon and that he would visit Arya/Gendry again. In December 2016, when asked about “The Forsaken”, GRRM reported that there were a lot of dark chapters in TWOW: We will learn more about the Order of the Green Hand in future books. GRRM has no comment about whether Daenerys or Tyrion will retire as POV characters once they meet. Characters dead in the show but alive in the books have parts to play in The Winds of Winter: GRRM is not done with Salladhor Saan. Miscellaneous TWOW Information As of November 2016, GRRM indicates there won’t be more Dunk and Egg stories until Winds is done. GRRM does not believe that the Arianne II sample chapter should be considered for a Hugo award. GRRM might do an AMA on reddit after Winds is complete. The Deep Ones won’t be rising to trouble the people of Westeros in Winds. GRRM won’t be editing new anthologies until he finishes Winds. As of February 2017, GRRM probably won’t release or read brand new sample chapters from The Winds of Winter. GRRM won’t be doing interview on ASOIAF until Winds is completed. GRRM discovers plot holes that require rewriting chapters “all the time.” As always, this resource has been manifestly improved by everyone who have sent me more information either by comments here, on twitter or elsewhere. Thank you to all of you, and if you know of something, say something! (Or just drop a comment here if you have some info that I don't have in the resource). Thanks again!

    A few small updates in recent days: - GRRM declined an update on his TWOW progress - GRRM is constantly rewriting/updating chapters. Nothing major obviously, but something I suppose.

    @Werthead To be fair, George wasn't pulling peoples' legs in January 2011. He was still writing Dance, and he thought he had a long ways to go. Namely, GRRM still had two major sequences that were unfinished and set to close out ADWD -- Battle of Winterfell + Battle of Meereen and both sequences were far from being finished. From my reading of what transpired between George and his publisher, they told George to wrap it up in short order. George cut one sequence (Probably the Battle of Winterfell as there were fewer completed chapters), and Anne Groell told George to cut another sequences (The Battle of Meereen), and GRRM did . Back in 2011, Anne said: So, back in January 2011, GRRM probably thought he had another year or so of writing ahead of him. Looking back at it now, I wish that George had spent another year writing the battles instead of cutting the story off where he did.

    @rhaenys I believe the user means the WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE app. But to clear it up, the sample on the app is TYRION II. GRRM read TYRION I at Eastercon and Miscon in 2012 which can be found among the sample chapters at the top of the page.

    The chapter from the Apple Version of A GAME OF THRONES will be Mercy.

    GRRM said that Areo Hotah would return as a POV character in TWOW. Bran had a chapter cut from ADWD that was originally going to be the chapter after Jon's final ADWD chapter, but GRRM cut it at the last minute apparently. I think it's likely it will be in TWOW.

    What we've come up with so far: "Lord Reaper of Pyke" (top middle) "of King Stannis Tommen", line 5. Edit: I think it reads "standard of King Tommen" in that line. Negative image of the doc. /u/Stormlady sees "Asha thought of", "had fought it" -- kind of big, but potential here that this is an Asha chapter, and! Asha hadn't been previously confirmed to return to TWOW as a POV character. /u/MagicBottomMan: "The old northman had fought.." /u/glass_table_girl & /u/Bookshelfstud : "the leader of the [blank] wore sellsword plate and mail." (para 2, line 1) "The knight brandished a bloody head impaled upon the point of a tall spear. The old man's head..." para 2, line 6-7 /u/Mallingerer sees "fashioned in the shape of the twin towers of House Frey" in para 1, line 3.

    Over on reddit, we're decoding an image from a brief image when GRRM made a brief appearance on John Oliver's show of what he was writing back in June 2014. In a word, the Battle of Ice, seemingly with Asha as a POV character!

    Adding a few more things today: 1. Damphair will have more chapters in TWOW. 2. At Balticon, GRRM said he would visit Gendry and Arya again.
  14. Hiya, A year and a half ago, I decided to embark on a complete Winds of Winter resource putting together all of the verified information I could find on the internet. However, life got busy, and my last real update to the original post was back in September 2015. Well, I decided to rectify that and have spent a few weeks working on a major update... but that update was post-length, so I just decided to make a brand new post incorporating everything both old and new into one single solitary resource. What's in the resource? Herein you'll find the following information: GRRM's Writing Progress All of the Released Sample Chapters (and where to find them) All of the Winds of Winter chapters that GRRM has read at conventions/appearances Winds of Winter chapters & POVs that are known to exist but have not been released or read at conventions Unconfirmed but probable POV characters Plot Points that GRRM or his editors have confirmed Miscellaneous information on TWOW In creating this resource, I've been helped by folks in pointing me to more info that I didn't know about previously. So! Know of something not included in this post? Let me know. I'll credit you! (if you want to be credited!) Thanks for reading. Enjoy!
