It looks like George R.R. Martin is trying his best to finish "The Winds of Winter" in time for a 2017 release date. The author of the "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series has been hard at work on churning out new pages for the highly anticipated novel, even to the point of possibly leaving work on the "Game of Thrones" spinoff shows to their designated writers. Could this mean that "TWOW" will be published by November this year?

Fans have always joked about George R.R. Martin being a slow writer who appears to be dealing with several distractions in the past few years. Conan O'Brien even featured a hilarious skit showing the author supposedly hard at work on "The Winds of Winter" but is actually just spending his days lazing around in his home. But is it possible that Martin is determined to finish the book to make sure "TWOW" is published before the end of the year? There are speculations that the "Game of Thrones" creator has already cast aside the spinoff shows in order to prioritize the sixth "ASOIAF" novel.

CeleBeat has previously reported on the possibility that George R.R. Martin is in contact with the writers who are supposed to work on the "Game of Thrones" spinoff shows in order to give them an outline of what they're allowed to do. Martin could then leave the writers to do what they can with the shows, giving him more time to focus on "The Winds of Winter". This certainly sounds like a great idea, especially since fans are already hoping that the "ASOIAF" novel will be published in late 2017.

A quick visit of George R.R. Martin's LiveJournal confirms that the author hasn't offered any updates on his life just yet. Fans believe this means Martin is typing new pages for "The Winds of Winter" especially since he has hoped to "squeeze more hours into the day" just to get the book done. Hopefully, this could mean the highly anticipated novel will be released by November this year.
