Writing is not easy, especially when you have millions of fans clamoring impatiently for your next book. There has been a lot of pressure on George R. R. Martin to finish his series, A Song of Ice and Fire. Many have feared that he will, "Pull a Robert Jordan" and leave the series unfinished, but Martin has constantly expressed his commitment to finishing the series.
Today he took a big step toward doing just that by finishing his fifth installment, A Dance With Dragons. There has been quite a long wait for this book, but I think the wait will be worth it when we finally get our hands on it.
A Dance With Dragons is set to be released July 12th of this year.
