ErasmusF Posted June 8, 2015 Share Posted June 8, 2015 And he does. There's been plenty of criticism of GRRM in this forums and elsewhere stating that the story grew out of his control, and that some heavy editing would have helped AFFC and ADWD. I would agree with anyone who said that GRRM is not a very good planner, and that a lot of problems in his novels arise from this (being incapable of predicting when he'll finish a book, scraping the 5 year gap, sepparating Feast and Dance, taking away the two concluding battles from Dance...). And while he is a bad planner, he is an excellent writer. His characters are very real, their motivations are perfectly presented, the plot grows organically, the prose is beautiful, etc. That's not something that can be said of D&D. Lots of people would quibble with your points. How many times do I need to read "must needs" or "mine own" or "words are wind'? D&D have the most popular show in TV. That is not entirely to their credit. Neither is some stilted points they are trying to distill from 100 pages into three minutes all their blame. Move on FFS.
