As the world stays at home due to the quarantines, George RR Martin is doing something productive. The 71-year-old author, who has created a giant fiction world through his book series “The Song of Ice and Fire”, popularly known by the name of the first book “Game of Thrones”, wrote that he isn’t going anywhere out in open, and focusing more on writing the next book in the series during isolation.
George wrote in his blog “I am off by myself in a remote isolated location, attended by one of my staff, and I’m not going into town or seeing anyone. Truth be told, I am spending more time in Westeros than in the real world, writing every day,” George continued as he wrote about GOT, “Things are pretty grim in the Seven Kingdoms… but maybe not as grim as they may become here.”

George RR Martin released the fifth book “A Dance with Dragons” from “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, supposedly to have seven books, in July 2011. It’s been 9 years since the fans are waiting for the next book of Game of Thrones. The popular HBO show named “Game of Thrones” which is based on the series “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George RR Martin started in 2011, overdid the released books of the series, and completed the story in 2019. But Martin is yet to release the Sixth book in the series.
Now, with George RR Martine having a lot of free time to focus on next Game of Thrones book amid Coronavirus lockdown, fans are hoping to finally get “The Winds of Winter”.

Fans can’t afford Martin to be unwell in any way before giving them the entire story of “A Song of Ice and Fire”. Thus, everyone was concerned about Author’s health, as he lives in the most vulnerable population as per the current scenario.
Addressing all the fans concerned about his health, Martin wrote “For those of you who may be concerned for me personally… yes, I am aware that I am very much in the most vulnerable population, given my age and physical condition. But I feel fine at the moment, and we are taking all sensible precautions.”
These words from George RR Martin indeed came as a relief for the fans of Game of Thrones amid Coronavirus concerns. But this doesn’t end the 9-year long wait for “The Winds of Winter”. However, we hope the wait ends soon for all of us, and so does the threat of Coronavirus.
