EliteDaily: A lot of people have been wondering when George R.R. Martin will finish his “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, which HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is based on. As it stands, the show may outpace the books, and that has many “GoT” fans concerned. In a recent interview with New Mexico In Focus, Martin has admitted that the impatience of fans and of HBO has affected his writing process. He is currently attempting to write the sixth novel in the “Ice and Fire” series but is having difficulty doing so due to the demands of those around him.
“Yes, to some extent it does [affect my writing], but when the writing is going well it doesn’t matter. When I’m there and working, I just kind of fall through my computer screen and I forget the world, I forget deadlines, I forget the TV show, and the emails and all of that stuff. It’s just me and the characters and the world that I’m describing, and I’m writing a page at a time, and a scene at a time and a word at a time.”
Over my cold, dead body. Less than zero percent chance this genius doesn’t finish the books. The only thing that will stop him would be a meeting with the grim reaper himself. But from what I’m hearing, the show has done several things different from the books. That doesn’t necessarily mean the story is going to go totally off path from what George has put down on paper, but it leaves the lingering possibility that anything can happen. Pretty convenient considering when we watch the show, we know that literally anything can happen. That’s why Game of Thrones is the best show on television. Everything is fair game. Nobody is safe. You thought Ned Stark was gonna play a major role. Wrong. You subconsciously felt that Joffrey would prevail, despite the unanimous hatred for that little dickhead. Wrong. It seemed like Oberyn would somehow defeat the Mountain. Wrong. Game of Thrones is simply a game without rules. The Red Wedding was some of the most ridiculous minutes in television history. The Purple Wedding caught EVERYBODY off guard. It’s the most unpredictable show to ever hit television.
Can people leave our buddy George alone? While I have no doubts that he’ll finish the books and the show will go down in history as one of the best ever, some things are better left alone. Leave the genius to his work. I read that Martin said, “I’ve actually given up answering the question ‘When will it be done'”. Let the man live. Eventually the books will come to an end. Eventually the show will come to an end. I hope it’s not for a long, long time, but it’s going to happen. But you gotta believe this guy knows what he’s doing. And you gotta believe the producers are gonna keep doing a great job depicting the books on screen. Let’s have some faith here people. Anybody actually nervous is a clown. You know nothing (Jon Snow).
Anyone else miss Khal Drogo? Like a lot? What a savage.
