The writer recently published a blog post titled See Ya Later where he told us that he will be taking a break from blogging to complete more urgent work, stating that he currently feels overwhelmed.

In his blog post, George RR Martin wrote, “All’s good, boys and girls… lots of exciting things going on. LOTS of exciting things. Maybe too many. I am buried in work, so much that it is starting to overwhelm me. Even with my army of loyal minions. So I am going to step back from blogging — okay, from NOT-a-blogging — for a while, till I get a few of these monkeys off my back. In the near future, you’ll likely see fewer posts here. And some of those will be by my minions. I’ll return eventually. Just don’t know when. See ya later, alligators.”

As mentioned above, it isn’t just the next installment of the A Song of Ice and Fire series The Winds of Winter that he is taking a break to complete, though this probably be one of the main projects he will be focusing on. Maybe the release date might be cut short slightly… hopefully!
