Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin took another distracting pause from killing everyone and not writing Winds Of Winter (the long-awaited sixth book of ice and fire and “t*ts and dragons“) to post on his Live Journal about football and the Golden Globes. A commenter responded to the post with a complaint sandwich, praising Martin’s work while also griping “it has been a whole year since we have received an update” about Winds Of Winter. Unlike most complaints about the length between Martin’s novels, this one actually received a response from the author:

You really think statements like that would make a difference? Ah, you sweet summer child. I have years of experience with this that tells me otherwise.

But okay, I will try it your way.

Not done yet, but I’ve made progress. But not as much as I hoped a year ago, when I thought to be done by now.

I think it will be out this year. (But hey, I thought the same thing last year).

To be fair, George R.R. Martin has shared a preview chapter, and his books have been released in a reasonable time when graphing his word count compared to other authors. Also, we’re pretty sure every time someone complains about Winds Of Winter, Martin kills another character.
