The latest update regarding the Winds of Winter release date Update was on GRRM’s blog on July 16, 2021, where he said that he shared his experience of the trip that he took. He then Paraphrased a well-known poem by Robert Frost, which goes on as follows: The woods were lovely, dark, and deep, but I have promises to keep and books to write before I sleep.
This could be a hint by GRRM to his fans regarding the update of his upcoming book. This could mean that, while he enjoyed his trip, he still needs to fulfill the promises he has made before he goes on to rest again. In the previous month, George had said that he wished that the books will be able to stay ahead of the Game of Thrones series and was excited to reveal about his five-year Game of Thrones contract with HBO and also to regard HBO Max’s new original content preparing with him.

On that day, he published a post on his blog called Not A Blog website, in which he confirmed that he wouldn’t be able to finish the book anytime soon. In the article, he said that he was hugely behind at the moment, and the prospect of trying to catch up is very hard.
The main reason why the writer was unable to concentrate is because of the pandemic since it’s been a rough environment for everyone, and it would be hard for creators to let unleash their imagination in a disturbing time. Back in 2019, he had given his fans explicit permission to lock him up in a cabin in White Island if he won’t be able to finish The Winds of Winter by July 2020, by the time of WordCon. Lucky for him that no fans actually set off to do what he asked.
In June 2020, George was focusing on developing the characters such as the enemy siblings Cersei and Tyrion Lannister, Ser Barristan Selmy, Asha Greyjoy, Arya Stark, and Areo Hotah the captain of the Martell guard. But this was more than a year ago. It’s safe to assume that he was able to complete development on these characters and was able to move on to other characters as well as instances.
