Release Date and Updates
Sources have confirmed that the long-awaited update about the winds of winter’s release is now live. On November 13, 2023, Winds of Winter will be released as a novel. Winds of Winter is the 6th addition to the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series.
George R.R. Martin, the writer of this fantastic series of novels, previously mentioned there would be a delay in releasing the sixth part. He mentioned it on his website exactly, quoting, “I am severely behind at the moment, and the prospect of catching up is increasingly stressful.”
The Reason Behind the Delay of The Book
Over the years, the fans were pushing R.R. Martin to bring the winds of winter as soon as possible as they couldn’t control their excitement for the next edition. The situation was so intense that in 2019, in a post, the writer jokingly asked his fans to confine him in a cabin on White Island if he had not finished Winds of Winter by July 2020.
Little did George R.R. Martin know that not only he but all of the world was going to get locked up in their respective cabins due to an unfortunate event of the global Pandemic. Like most of us people, the Coronavirus Pandemic took a big toll on his mental health. The level of creative thinking a writer requires to write a novel with a huge fan base was missing in his experience due to the grieving situation of the whole world.
The seventy-one-year-old author gave his best, locked himself up in a cabin, and informed him he was regular with his work, and fans can expect the release date soon enough. The COVID-19 pandemic gave him a lot of time to illustrate and build the characters better alone without any distractions altogether.
Sources say he focused on characters like Cersei and Tyron Lannister in June 2020. Character development is essential to all novels, and R.R. Martin never failed us.
The Novel Writing Sequence
In April 2011, shortly before the release of A Dance with Dragons, Martin stated that he hoped “the last two books would go a little faster than this one” and that he estimated that it would take at least three years of his dedicated work to finish the next book at a good pace.
According to Martin, in April 2015, he hoped to have it published before the sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones in 2016 (which was to contain material from the novel); in September 2015, the novel’s Spanish editor stated, as much.
During a January 2020 interview, Martin stated he is continuing to work on his primary project, The Winds of Winter, but is also working on the television adaptation of Nnedi Okorafor’s science fantasy novel Who Fears Death.
In March and April of 2020, the pandemic year, Martin stated that he was working on The Winds of Winter on a daily basis. In February 2021, Martin noted that he had written “hundreds and hundreds of pages” of The Winds of Winter in 2020 but it was not the most productive year.
But now that we know about the Winds of Winter release leaks, we fans can anticipate the work is going on and soon enough, we will have a copy of Winds of Winter on our shelves and even could watch a television adaptation.
The Winds of Winter will be a book taking the fans towards the north.
As it turned out, the preceding chapter, A Dance with Dragons, protected significantly less novel than Martin expected, barring a deliberate giant hostilities sequence and several character strings that ended on cliffhangers.
Martin plans to address these storylines “very early” in The Winds of Winter, stating, ” I am going to start with the two big battles I had been building up to, the war in the ice and the war at Meereen – the war at Slaver’s Bay.
Afterward, we will get it from there.” A Victarion Greyjoy part of the scene will begin five seconds after Dance with Dragons ends, just in time for Ironborn’s arrival in Slaver’s Bay.
In an article published on Martin’s website, Ryan Martell detailed her trip to Griffin’s Roost to see the young man who inquired about becoming Aegon VI Targaryen.
As Martin discussed at the 2016 London Book Fair, The Winds of Winter will have a dark quality. “I’ve been predicting the arrival of winter for 20 years,” he said.
Displaying a world where matters die and ice, darkness, and blood fill the world so that humans cannot enjoy a happy, heartwarming experience.
There are some casts in very dark places. Many people are going through more severe situations before they get better, so things are getting worse before they get better.”
Updates on the Winds of Winter Release as Quoted by George R.R. Martin
This is what he quoted in his latest post.
“…I did, however, get a lot of my writing work done in 2021. In truth, I have an enormous amount of work; I seem to have an enormous number of projects. (I am not complaining. I like working—writing, editing and producing. There is no other thing I like better than writing and storytelling). It is understandable that only one of those projects matters to many of you. Please know that to me, they all matter. Yes, I am working on our next release, The Winds of Winter. It has become tiresome to state it endlessly in a hundred venues a hundred times..”
Talking about his progress, George R.R. Martin says-
“I made a lot of progress writing and building Winds in 2020 and less in 2021… but even ‘less’ is not ‘no progress.’ The world of Westeros and the world of A Song of Ice and Fire is my first priority and will remain so until the story is told. However, Westeros has become bigger than the Winds of Winter or even A Song of Ice and Fire..”
