Game of Thrones was a once in a million iconic series that changed the history of television forever. Based on the series of novels by George R.R. Martin titled A Song of Ice and Fire, 2019 saw the show reach its penultimate end with season 8. However, fans heavily criticised the storyline of the last season with most of the hatred directed at showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. George has assured his fans that GOT's ending will not affect how his books will reach its climax.

Talking further about how Game of Thrones changed his life, Martin spoke with The Observer. GRRM revealed that he was under immense pressure when the show was still airing, to complete his books. "I don’t think it was very good for me, because the very thing that should have speeded me up actually slowed me down," George stated while adding that he would sit down to write with good days being three to four pages. However, Martin would feel terrible because he would think that he should have written 40 instead, to complete the book quickly.

"Having the show (Game of Thrones) finish is freeing because I’m at my own pace now. I have good days and I have bad days and the stress is far less, although it’s still there," GRRM stated.

Guess, this means the waiting game for The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring might be longer than we think!
